Snags along the way!
Well! Went to bed at 2:30am. Woke up at 5:50am. I got ready for my day. A four hour flight to Lima, Peru. I am totally psyched as I have never been to Peru. My first snag was discovering a red bull had exploded in my wonderful leather bag. I spent the next 45 minutes trying to dry it with a hair dryer. When I left the bathroom I realized I had to leave in 10 minutes for the airport and I was not...
After checking with work to make sure everything was going well I left to go play tourist. We went on a wonderful tour of the pyramids outside Mexico City and to Basilica of our Lady of Guadalupe. We also went to a “market” for local artist. I could write of report on the history of everything we saw but I won’t I have added links so you can read up on them if you chose. ...
Mexico City is BIG! We haven’t seen much yet. We are heading to the pyramids in an hour. I had some work to do today so luckily we are able to catch a later shuttle. Last night we went to dinner across the street at a nice cafe called Karisma. We sat on the patio enjoying the weather. It was very nice until halfway through our meal the sky opened the temperature dropped and it hailed. We...
I am on my second plane waiting for it to take off. The layover went a lot quicker than I thought it would. I miss the foster doggy already. Door closed! Bye!
4.5 hours and counting!
I am packed, kinda. I said I would talk about suitcases so here goes. The best suitcase I have ever used is the Burton wheelie sub. They call it a walk in closet on wheels. I can testify it’s true!

I have most of the things crossed off my list. There were 100 things I didn’t put on the list that I have to do. Sasha (foster doggy) is playing with friends and happy. They said she whined at the door after we left. Breaks my heart! I need to wash the car and do a load of laundry at the same time to save time. Later I am going to post a long one about suitcases. I have gone through...
Bye Bye Doggy
Well, almost bye bye doggy. We are running a little late. Wanted to be on the road by 8am. I am pretty much ready. We need to pack the car with her stuff. We should be on the way soon. We should be back by 5pm which means a few things on my list will not get done before we leave. I guess that’s ok. They weren’t things I HAD to have. I am going to attempt the tumblr app for my iphone...

My friend Brian said I should do a travel blog. I have tried blogging before. I am not that good. I will try one more time. Welllllll!!!! There are so many things to do to prepare to leave for weeks at a time. I made my list and I have slowly crossed items off the list. Tomorrow we are taking our “foster” puppy to stay with a friend. It’s an 8 hour drive round trip! That...
