It is my habit that, just when I am on the brink of starting something new, I begin to wriggle. Embarking on the path I have chosen I find to be a daunting task, for it seems so many other possibilities must be sacrificed in the process.

Finally, some friends at a bar! I had previously googled reggae bars in providencia (the area I'm staying) to find there was one around the corner. I ...
