I'm here, and I'm taking quite a few pictures, but I won't be able to post any of them online until I get home and develop them all. We are driving some 'minivan' made by Ford with a four-banger turbo diesel. It seats seven comfortably, and is smaller than most station wagons in the US. It's getting very good mileage considering the driver, weight, and roads here, but I'm not sure of its exact mileage. I think that it's upwards of 30 mpg. I haven't driven it.
I probably won't be able to get online often. We don't have the interweb where we're staying (we're staying pretty far out into a rural area). I'll try to check in though if I can find out exactly what mileage we're getting.
