With one day left before leaving, I'm sending out a preliminary message to everyone who has expressed interest in my trip, and some who haven't!
This trip is named Operation: Sueno. This is in the tradition of last year's Operation: Heatstroke to the Middle East. Sueno is the Spanish of dream, and I certainly intend to live my dreams on this trip. I will be flying into Costa Rica. After hitting Panama, I will begin making my way Norte, back to Denver.

My goals on this trip include:
1) To ride an ostrich. Bonus points for making it past eight seconds.
2) Not to get sunburned. Hey, I can hope, right?
3) Try iguana, conch, and agouti. Usually vegetarian, but these are worth the exception.
4) Kiss a sea turtle
5) Do a cartwheel every day. Upon graduating college, I have realized the real risk of taking life too seriously. To avoid this, it is best to do a cartwheel every now and then.

Well, these are the final hours folks. Give me a call in the next day or it will need to wait awhile. If I've borrowed any books, I hope I can just hang onto them for the summer!

*BTW, I'm aware ostriches don't usually live in Guatemala. I will be working on a horse and ostrich farm, though.
