I’m sitting in a café in Antigua after spending 85-ish days in the jungle. The jungle is both remote and surprisingly not remote. Today is the first day that I could simply walk five minutes to drink an iced latte and use some internet, for instance. But in the jungle near Semuc Champey, I was somehow always surrounded by people, and not just tourists or coworkers.
Normally this kitschy play on words reverses the “love” and “hate”. Here’s the thing: I’m super fucking excited to see Ecuador fade from view out of the plane window, but it is a huge pain in the butt to get ready to actually leave.
well, kids, I suppose the majority of you know how that “falling in love with the doctor dude” went … oh brother.
anyway, now that that has been over for months and months, it’s about time i left cuenca, and ecuador, and started a new segment in my american adventures.
what’s that? where will that take me, you say? what does it all mean, you ask?
silly rabbits. you know that even if i had a plan, it would change =) but just know that it’s on the table and things are afoot.
in the meantime, i visited other parts of ecuador, peru, and mexico and will be updating this blog with some adventure tales in the days and weeks to come.
but first, let’s mini-vacay in the USA!
When Heather whisked me off to our whirlwind trip through very specific parts of Peru, I was prepared to dislike it. Low expectations equal few disappointments and #BecauseEcuador and yadda yadda yadda. But Peru is amazing and Lima was my favorite part. (Obviously Machu Picchu is indescribably “WHOA AMAZEBALLS”, but people don’t friggin’ live in Machu Picchu … anymore.)
