A posts pending WordPress getting its thumb out of its _____ and allowing me to upgrade my account. (I’ve filled the 3GB and am unwilling to delete previous photos). If this isn’t sorted by Christmas, Merry Christmas!
‘Twas my last day at MAWS and a productive one. Will complete the rest of this post later as I am bushed. Just wanted to give a heads up that I won’t have wifi until the 17th.
I don’t have the gas to write about the trip right now. It was lovely. I thought I should mention that I might be going offline again (potentially until I get back to Canada) as new friends, Tulio and Mario, have generously offered for me to stay at their place in La Paz and I … More Day Eighteen – Naps Needed
You’ll have to wait to hear that story – and even about La Paz. I’m tired and have to get up to an alarm in the morning, so I’m off to bed. How long you ask? Atleast until the 17th > I’m off to Espiritus Sanctus to paddle about the Sea of Cortez for the … More Day Ten – Mansplained

Usually this means I have some back tracking to do, however in this instance it meant … More Day Thirty-Eight – Goooood Morning Valparaiso!
The day wasn’t all that hard to spend, it turns out. I had an extremely slow, and leisurely morning, followed by an equally slow and leisurely day. I spent the vast majority of the day on a park bench in the central plaza of Copiapo, reading one of my favourite books, Maia by Richard Adams. … More Day Thirty-Seven – On Hold for a Day
