Rode a bus through the clouds.
Swam under a half-lit Caribbean ocean moon.
Woke up in a hammock to a snake crawling across me.
Hiked with monkeys and sloths.
Drank cerveza and Nicaraguan rum and guaro.
Kayaked through a jungle.
Took surfing lessons at sunrise.
Pedaled a bike over pavement and dirt from village to village.
Taught two teenage boys who spoke no English how to body-surf.
Played chess with an Italian expat.
Ate jerk chicken tacos and gallo pinto and fresh fruit pastries and fish drenched in coconut sauce.
Smelled leather in skinny market corridors.
Walked with kids in an independence day parade.
Ran barefoot on a deserted stretch of beach.
Showered in the rain.
