This is an update on Lucana's progress in the United States. She left Fresno, California just a few hours ago. What a wonderful and amazing woman — she has so much energy and ability! Not only is she an inspiring photographer, but a fine mechanic, and has the personality and intelligence of a genius (gosh, she's fluent in four languages). Here are a few quick snapshots that I took yesterday while she was changing the engine oil, checking the timing, the idle, the differential gear oil, and whatever else (I lost count of all the maintenance she does every 1,000 kilometers).
