Just a quick note to let you all know that I’ve made it out of the rainforest (after two months of almost complete isolation…and only eighteen minutes of satellite phone communication with the outside world) and that I’m in healthy, happy, and thoroughly enjoying fresh vegetables for the first time in as long as I can remember.
Today has been a complete culture shock – chairs, tables, doors, stairs, coca cola, porcelain plates, and bread…all things that I haven’t had in weeks. I have had the time of my life, it’s been absolutely amazing – I have so many funny, interesting, and down-right unbelievable stories to tell; hopefully I can get them up here in the next few weeks.
Thank you to everyone for the encouraging emails, comments, and facebook messages – coming back to such an online “welcome” has been better than I could even have imagined.
Cheers! (and I truly mean that…I’m having beer for the first time tonight in weeks, and I know it will be a grand time!)
