I'm sending my Projection DVD Copy to the Montreal World Film Festival via a friend (Charles) from Stony Plain who is here on a short term team. I don't trust the Guatemalan couriers for timing. They are very expensive too. A regular manilla envelope (8 1/2" X 11") under 1 lb would cost about $60 and arrive approximately 2 weeks later in Canada. I checked into it when I was with Les who had to courier some exams to Canada.

Salomé, one of my lovely sisters, mailed me a hefty birthday package. It arrived in Guatemala City about 6 weeks later and I was sent a telegram (which took 9 days to arrive at my home) which notified me that I should either pick up the package in person or pay a tramitador to pick it up for me with a signed letter from me and a photocopy of my passport. We picked it up at the end of May in the palace which is the head post office of the country.

My Projection DVD has French subtitles now. I got the final translated bits on Tuesday from Claudine in Montreal. She did a fabulous job. I hope that many francophones enjoy the show at the festival as a result.

Yeah! Great, I'm so glad it worked out well with Claudine. She'll have to come see the film now with the rest of the groupies.

I can't wait to see the whole thing. I really hate the fact that these things are called teasers.
