About this blog

In May 2009, I flew one way down to Panama. I returned over the next 5 months to my home in Denver, Colorado. I never left North America, but crossed through 8 countries. The entire journey was by bus: chicken busses, retired US school busses, and wonderful Mexican busses!

This blog is a re-posting of all the updates I sent out over my time abroad.

Panama: A stay with a billionaire in Noriega's former mansion Catching an octopus by hand.

Costa Rica: El Puente, a soup kitchen, community center, and tutoring project for the indigenous Bribri in Puerto Viejo de Talamanca A visit to Monteverde, a mountainous community of Quaker dairy farmers Surviving San Jose

Nicaragua: Climbing (active) Volcan Concepcion on Isla de Ometepe Granada: soul, art, death, and rum A birthday at Lago de Apoyo near Masaya, *most beautiful place on earth* Working at an Entrepreneurship and Business-Building center in Leon, coaching women on business plans

Honduras: Fundacion Adelante micro-finance org Cayos Cochinos: uninhabited islands with palm trees, just like the post cards Political chaos and drama

El Salvador: dangerous past, dangerous present, optimistic people!

Guatemala: Working on a horse ranch Meeting the modern Maya resting in Antigua, and almost European city Tikal: a playground for big kids Lago de Atitlan and paragliding

Belize: poverty, reggae, and expensive prices

Mexico: heat, beauty, music, culture, food, festivities for Sept 14! Oaxaca. What can I say? Oaxaca, my love D.F. & UNAM
