I am wandering around the apartment alternately crying at the idea of leaving beautiful Cuenca, Ecuador, and grinning at the thought of starting a new chapter of my life in an RV in the USA.
My tickets are bought, my bags are packed, the cat’s paperwork is in progress, and we’ve made a good start packing up all the household goods we so laboriously shipped here just last Fall. Steve is going to stay behind to finish packing and shipping them back. I can’t stay much longer because I get physically weaker every day from the altitude. Chewing coca leaves helps, but I can only chew so many before getting irritable. So long as I don’t have to pass a drug test any time soon…
So, this blog, Goodbye USA, Hello Ecuador, is about to run critically short of material. I’ve started a new blog to chronicle my journeys around the open roads of the USA. This blog will be family-friendly and apolitical. You can find it at peripateticperi and I invite you to follow it.
If you’ve been following more for my posts of poetry, fiction, mysticism, or musings on human nature, you might be interested in Consistent Principles, a blog in which I will versify, philosophize, contemplate, dissect, rant, inform, and share short previews of my fiction. Why not follow both?
