Can’t Stand The Sadness

I decided to leave. Too depressing. Too sad. Below is the massive UN barracks in downtown Cap Haitien. Complete with machine gun towers. This is as close as I dared get to snap photos. The UN soldiers here were from Nepal. It said so on the front gate and the Nepalese...

Even Sadder When It Rains

Yes, the skies darkened and then opened, and the rain poured down, making Haiti seem that much more sad. It also got some of that stagnant (dengue infested, I'm sure) water moving through the trash filled gutters and streets. And created lots of mud. Undeterred, I set...

Back Through La Paz On The Way To Cusco

****** Thanks to all the FoFF (Friends of Fifty Fifty) who saw my post about Sydney Anchor´s (my buddy Mark´s daughter) GoFundMe campaign and decided to help. She blew past her original goal of $800 and is well on her way to Peru to help out with medical care in poor...
