They've bonded already. July 2012.
My sister has left Boston to go back to Panama. Her visit was short but full of fun. We welcomed her calming presence, her talent at making the perfect cheese plate, her ability to make Alice smile, and her stories about her completely opposite life living in Central America (no electricity, no cell/internet, no running water, bugs the size of your hand!). She has gone back to her little remote town on a piece of land jutting into the Caribbean to live with the Ngäbe people. We won't see her for another nine months or so.
And we miss her already.
