Well, I have 5 days left and I am off to South America. I am flying out of Dulles Saturday afternoon to arrive in Miami for the night. The following morning I will be flying out to Quito to meet my host family for the next 2 months. The last few weeks have been a little crazy but I know once I am in the friendly skies I will feel better:) I'll update my travelogue as often as possible, and when I find out I will e-mail you my mailing address (for the first 2 months anyway).
Some of my many personal goals for this trip:
A)To become as close as possible to fluency in Spanish (wishful thinking)
B)To visit (To name a VERY few): The Galapagos Islands (Ecuador), Machu Pichu (Peru), Buenos Aires (Argentina), and maybe the Salt Flats(Bolivia).
C)To meet as many interesting and wonderful people on the way as I possibly can-both locals and travelers (One of the best parts of travel!).
D)To successfully budget my money so that it will last the duration of the trip:)
E)To not catch any crazy illnesses
F)To hitch/ride in a chicken truck (for Mark and Brian:))!
G)To eat as much authentic South American food as I can without gaining one pound (again, wishful thinking), and to answer a recently asked question-yes, I am going to eat Guinea Pig in Peru.
H)To come back in one piece with most of my things:)
I could go on with the goals list-but some I want to keep for myself:) I'll write soon! Adios Amigos!

Miss you
It seems like we can never get each other on the phone. I'm so excited for you. You will have so much fun and be speaking Spanish in no time. Have fun and be safe. I'll try and call before you leave. I miss you!!!!
