A Leap of Faith

(Sometime in April, 2017) (Forewarning: this post is liable to change as the story continues being expanded on from old notes I have not yet found) We were landing, and amid the squeals of my fellow ACA family as we gazed upon the beauty of Rio de Janeiro, my friend Brittney said, “I’ve always wanted...

Iguazu or Bust

20 – 25 Febrero 2017   Featuring: My jolly self and a very friendly cabin kitten 20 Febrero 2017 Cabañas-Cabins We have most recently arrived on the border of Brazil after driving all night and spending the morning touring a Jesuite Mission (like zombies cause bus-sleep=no-sleep).

A Little Girl Child

01 Febrero 2017 (date started and date of occurrence) A little girl child. Sitting with her family in the office for Argentinian Visas, she looked irretrievably bored.

The Real. The Raw. The Broken.

I woke up for class. But really, I didn’t. Because my fibromyalgia decided to act up today... Continue Reading →

Prima Vera = Party Time

Spring (Prima Vera) here, as anywhere, is a wonderfully bipolar time of year. With it come the joys of rain and shine (all within the same few hours) and wind and sweat (also within the same few hours, even without outside forces such as exercise causing interference).

The Galpon

30 Septiembre 2016 Having conversations with the people here in complete Spanish. I did it. It was FABULOUS. And then, I met another Lindsey (please, I must cue all of the others of my kind to laugh.
