Still no resolution on the visa situation, besides the unwelcome one of having our students return to their home countries before getting visas to ordain.  Another try (our fourth) next Monday.

Went to see Bhante Anoma yesterday, a nice visit, though short.  He may be visiting soon to bring doors and windows for the rooms above me.

The two new rooms are coming along well.  Plastering now, then flooring, and finally the bathrooms, windows and doors. 

Depending on the visa situation, there will be either a novice or an anagarika ordination on May 5th – stay tuned for an update next week.
