"Meet Me Under the Ombu Tree"
As I have more and more conversations about what Iīm doing here and what Iīll do when I go back home, Iīm beginning to find like minded people who also realize that the phrase "living for retirement" really isnīt that endearing
How do you measure Success?
Do you feel successful?
Why...or why not?
Do you feel accomplished?
What does accomplishment look like to you?
Are You Happy???
By the time you get to whatever level you were hoping to achieve (surprisingly to me, most people measure success in relation to their profession/career) , youīre so tired - possibly bitter and resentful - that the last thing you want to do is abandon the comforts of home to see the world
Iīm aware that it isnīt everyoneīs dream to See the World. And some of you arenīt the Mexican resort type. But some of you are unhappy, I can tell, and Iīm cheeky enough to point it out. I get in your face, donīt I? No, it isnīt any of my business. But when you love someone, itīs only honest that you tell them what you think (tactfully, of course) and if they love you, they can handle listening to it. Being a unique individual means that you take what I have to say and do with it what you will. Some people donīt like what I have to say and some people have even stopped talking to me because of it. Itīs sad but theyīll make their own way. As you can see, it doesnīt stop me from saying what I mean. Iīd like to ask forgiveness for being so bold, sometimes, but really - Iīm not sorry. If what I have to say makes even one person hesitate at the fork in the road and take the path less travelled, then YAY!

The life you're living is a choice you're making.
Open your eyes.
I meant to organize these pictures better and I had a lot more to add but it may have to wait until I'm in Toronto as I can't seem to upload pictures on these computers and my camera is threatening to run out of batteries. In any case, these pictures are some of my first weekend in Buenos Aires and mostly in the San Telmo area
This last week saw me taking a river beach break in Colonia del Sacramento, Uruguay. Now, I'm back in Buenos Aires determined to actually see the city this time around. It's a great weekend to be back, there is so much going on and I'm already exhausted from walking around for seven hours today! Only two and a half days left in South America - it went really quickly and, sometimes, very slowly.
Hope all is well back home and that it's stopped snowing!!!! Seriously!
