Recently I was looking for a photo to show someone, and I remembered that it was on the blog. I pulled it up, searched, and quickly located the photo. Then I spent hours reliving our amazing adventures, and remembered why I started the blog in the first place–to preserve the memories. Incredible adventures we certainly have had, and it made me sad that I have not recorded many from our time here in Bolivia and this unique, diverse, and beautiful continent, heretofore almost totally unknown to me. I hereby pledge to myself to revive the blog. I hope I can fulfill the pledge. It’ll be a series of latergrams, but memories all the same.
Besides, we have news.
Those who have followed the misadventures from the beginning know the famous line we held on to: “just two years”. It was just going to be a two year adventure and then we’d return to our beloved Denver.
Now at almost halfway through, it’s not a good time to quit. With just another year after La Paz, I could actually retire. And although the benefits would be minuscule, there is something to be said for that accomplishment, especially for a person who sacrificed the chance of a career to raise a family (NO regrets there–I’d do it all over again). Besides, think of the retirement party! You should start making plans to come!
All that to say, handshakes* are a-comin’. Soon. And you know what that means.
The rules, along with the hints, will be published soon. Stay tuned!!
*For those who don’t remember, “handshakes” is the term used to denote the promise of the next post. It’s a promise because nothing is official until it goes through the laborious paperwork process, but a handshake is as good as gold.
