Central and South America - Here I come! September 27, 2017

As the days get shorter, leaves turn yellow and frost threatens, it's time for me to get out before it gets too cold and the snow starts to fly.  I am on my way to Panama City for a week and then on to Cartagena, Colombia where I will join Madventure for my third overland.  We leave Cartagena October 8 to drive down the west coast of South America to the southern tip at Ushuaia, Argentina and then up the east coast to Rio de Janeiro in time for the carnival February 9, 2018.

It was not easy leaving today.  I had the privilege of looking after Nico a couple days a week this summer and I fell in love with him.  He is so fun and cute and happy and cuddly and curious and smart and..... Just plain awesome!

He's 18 months old and will be a completely different boy when I get home in 6 months.  I'm going to miss him!  Thank goodness for FaceTime!
