Flu

Wow. What a thing that has sweeped through world! I’m on Isla Holbox right now, (just off the coast of Yucaton) and the kids have school canceled until May 8th. Lucky kids!

My good Friend, Garance

So, as I write this entry, I’m still in a bit of a transitional space because Garance has found a sailboat to Cuba.  Since I split ways with my brothers, I sent an email to Garance to see where she was.  She happened to be where I was going!  So she gave me some good advice to naviate through Cancun quickly and cheaply get to Isla Mujeres……where there were sailboats going places!  We’ve been exploring/hanging out/talking to people/reading/swimming/tanning….for the last… Read More »My good Friend, Garance
