We chose the tour that included a 3 hour horseback riding …

    We continued on our journey, stopping briefly for a bathroom break and some delicious bizcotos. We chose whether we wanted them with chocolate, coffee, or cheese. Again, we filed back into the bus, and drove to the market place.

He is very clear about the issue, has given it a lot of tought , and has a plan of action when he returns, but is very cognizant of the challenges. He remarked at one point that he wished ...
