Dear Dr John,
Today, we loaded and transported the container to the harbor in Weil am Rhein (Germany). From there, the container was shipped to Antwerp via the Rhein river. Once in Antwerp, it will begin its journey across the sea to Callao, where it is scheduled to arrive on July 14, 2006.
We are glad that the machines and equipment are on their way to Peru. Our colleagues and trainees have done a great job, and we hope everything will go as planned. We will send you an email with the exact travel dates of our trainees.
For your information, we have included a couple of pictures, showing the containers progress. (missing sentence)
All the best, Mathias Plettenberg

Commentary by Diospi Suyana: Attention! Your help might be needed. It can be hard to get a container through Lima customs. It could happen that we will have to fight for the release of the container by sending emails and letters to the president of Peru, the Peruvian Embassy and the Lima customs director. Please be prepared to help. The container includes all our equipment for the hospital workshop. We will keep you posted on this website.
