Trip Start Mar 14, 2004

What can I say? Before I left home, I thought I would be in South East Asia by now checking out beaches in Thailand and temples in Cambodia. But here I am, only in Brazil with several more South American countries remaining to be explored. So whatīs it like traveling for 2 years straight??? Certainly there must be things from home that I miss, right? Of course there are... I miss getting the cell phone bill telling me how much I went over my limit..that was a real kick in the nuts. And the electric and gas bills. Car insurance... thereīs a fun one I miss getting. I miss going into the orifice..I mean office..early for some stupid presentation that no one on night shift cared about anyway... and neither did I for that matter. I miss staying at the office late, after going into said office early, as previously mentioned. I miss traffic during rush hour when there is an accident on the highway
I arrived in a hip beach town called Jericoacoara in the northeast of Brazil. I was tired of Sao Louis so I left a day ahead of Boris and a new travel mate, Guillermo from Spain. Itīs here where I will celebrate my 2 year anniversary of traveling. My first day here, I set out to explore on my own but while walking along the beach I met a cool chic from Argentina... perfect! back to spanish again. We ended up hitching a ride in a dune buggy to this little community far from Jericoacoara. The people there donīt get tourists and when we mentioned we were getting hungry, one of the locals was on the problem. He asked one of the local women to cook something up. She pulled out this large fish from the freezer and slashed off two huge fillets to fry up for us. It was the best lunch Iīve had in a while! Before making our way back to town, another local showed us the sea horses that live along the river that empties into the sea. We got lucky on the 2 hour walk back by hitching a ride in another dune buggy. A cool day to introduce a fun, celebratory evening!
Happy Anniversary to Me!!!
