Costa Rica has been in many ways fun and interesting, but upon finding out that my mother would like me home for Thanksgiving (I initally planned to be gone through December) I’ve decided that I don’t have the time to see the whole country. My interest really lies down on the South American continent. I’ve decided to go to Panama City tomorrow to find a boat to take me to Cartagena, and from there move to Bogota to hopefully spend a month, taking language classes and seeing what life’s like in a country with a reputation ranging from sinister to culturally magnificent. It’ll be nice to try and settle down a bit somewhere and thoroughly explore an area, rather than getting a glimpse of a tourist town and moving along..
Someone I met this morning inspired me to start thinking about something I had fancied during my senior year of High School-becoming a wilderness firefighter. Now wouldn’t that be something?
