My weekend

I was exhausted after Manu, but managed to rest up on Friday night and was raring to go this weekend, which was really good. Yesterday I did laundry at the house, and then I made lunch with the mom, Isabel....

The Jungle

I spent five days in the jungle last week. Or more accurately, about 3 days in the jungle and 2 days driving there and back. The more upscale tours drive in and fly back, and now I understand why. It's...

Big Plans

Today, it's a week since I left San Francisco. Hard to believe. On the one hand, it doesn't seem like I've been gone very long, but somehow I also feel like I've been here for a while. This trip hasn't...
