Tuesday 3/14: Safari River Float and Mistico Hanging Bridges
Tuesday morning was the BEST and clearest view of the volcano yet! (And really, most mornings have been pretty clear.) But Tuesday had a great blue sky. We learned that the volcano is active, but it’s in a “resting phase”. It lasted erupted in 1968. It still releases smoke, though! See below. That’s smoke, not… Continue reading Tuesday 3/14: Safari River Float and Mistico Hanging Bridges
Monday 3/13: Rio Celeste day

A packing post (aka, how not to pack…)
Coming at you from O’Hare Airport… current view: Yes, they brought a fold up chess board. 🙂 It’s 10:33 p.m and our flight doesn’t leave until after midnight, so… I have time to kill. I had a request for how I packed all my stuff into a relatively small carry-on for a full 2 week… Continue reading A packing post (aka, how not to pack…)
Welcome to Crazy Town
I like a lot of things about myself, but there are definitely some things I could do without. A big one: I am a worrier. And I perseverate on things. To the point that sometimes when I start going on about something, my mom will say point blank, "You are perseverating.... ". I really do… Continue reading Welcome to Crazy Town
