Dispatch Cinco: Seeing Mountains
We left Cusco on Thursday morning at 6:15am and a few hours later, we began our trek on the Inca Trail. It will be hard to describe the last four days and I´ll be happy when I´m able to put up pictures. I´ll say now that I´m glad we all finished and did so safely. I feel very blessed to have seen the glories of creation that I have seen. I´m in awe of what the Incas carved into their mountains. ...
Dispatch Cuatro: No tengo @ key
Its incredibly hard to use a keyboard unlike any Ive used in the USA or in Lima. Anyway, Im in Cusco at 11,000ft. sucking in as much of this oxygen-depleted air as my lungs can take. I like it here. 16th century churches placed on giant Incan temple bases. A mix of all different kinds of Peruvians with gringos sprinkled here and there. We just took the risk and sat down at a food stall in the...
Dispatch Tres - Breathing Deep (Cough, Cough)
Coming to you live from B&B de Kike in Los Olivios, Lima, Peru. This is our temporary lodging for the night since we are flying out in the morning, leaving here at 8am. I highly recommend B&B de Kike to anyone that stumbles upon this blog via Google. It´s way outside of the city, across from a classic urban park (more concrete than green), and it does not have a sign. But so far Kike and...
Dispatch Dos - It´s morning in Lima
We left Melia´s apartment in Washington DC at 3:30am only to get lost in DC… how can I still get lost in DC… my new GPS took me a different way than I knew. Then we freaked out after running into No Outlet signs and One Ways, so we doubled back and took Conn all the way up to the Beltway and then to 66. It put us an hour behind schedule. But we made it to the airport. And a big shiny...

Goodbye Mr. Harwell →
http://www.lansingstatejournal.com/article/20100507/SPORTS/5070324/1019/SPORTS Late at night, after my parents thought I was asleep, I used to lay in bed under the covers with my tiny AM radio next to my ear, listening to West Coast broadcasts of the Tigers. Ernie Harwell really was the voice of summer. While Alan Trammell and Lou Whitaker broke my heart by not returning the baseball cards I...
Bikram Woes.... or The Pain of Not Being Mindful...
PLUS PLUS EQUALS DISASTER. Not a good combination. It was a very painful class and it was more disappointing because I thought this would be the one where I nailed every pose. Humility has a strong taste. Do you ever feel really off? I think my neighborhood is shunning me. It’s weird. EDIT - I asked my roommate if I should feel like my neighbors were shunning me. His reply,...
