sola y soltera.

GUATEMALA | Thursday, 17 Apr 2008 | Views [1084]

Hola. I am back, and in the process of uploading my many photos. But I figured I'd send on my last little (well, epic) entry in the meantime... Mis ultimos tres dias en Guatmala... and you thought I'd keep you hanging? Me encanta bus rides. And ... Read more >

letting go.

GUATEMALA | Monday, 14 Apr 2008 | Views [606]

So, I left the internet cafe just over an hour ago, thinking to myself what a hollow email I had sent out to you all. I thought perhaps I got caught up in the city of Antigua and the wedding weekend and wasn´t spending the time journaling and reflecting ... Read more >

first comes love, then comes marriage: wedding wknd in antigua.

GUATEMALA | Monday, 14 Apr 2008 | Views [1324]

There were three weddings in Antigua on Saturday. One, of course, was Kate and Andres... another was the owner of this Irish bar here called Reilly´s... and another was a couple from California who recently moved here and somehow got over 200 people ... Read more >

first the magic, then the party

GUATEMALA | Thursday, 10 Apr 2008 | Views [716]

I just want to thank all of you who responded to that first novel of an email. Your perspectives on life are so relative to me right here and I appreciate you sharing them with me. And thank you for reminding me that there are no true coincidences ... Read more >

guatemala, a country of coincidences

GUATEMALA | Wednesday, 9 Apr 2008 | Views [769]

I honestly can´t believe I have been here in Guatemala for only two days. It feels like a lifetime ago that I left West 4th Street for LaGuardia. My time here so far has been split between the colonial city of Antigua and currently in what they call ... Read more >

crossing the border

USA | Friday, 11 May 2007 | Views [635]

Hello again, So... if I were to close my eyes and walk the streets of Seattle, I would think I was in San Francisco. First off, every Seattlite (is that right?) I met said this was the sunniest day that they had seen in years. Lucky me! Secondly, ... Read more >

from the Hills and the valleys... to the city and the mountains...

USA | Tuesday, 8 May 2007 | Views [372]

So, I know this isn't an Asia trip, but I figured I'd send along an email about my current trip to the Pacific Northwest... probably my most long awaited destination. I arrived in LA on Thursday after packing all night (of course) and leaving my apartment ... Read more >

chiang mai, thailand

THAILAND | Saturday, 30 Dec 2006 | Views [548]

We decided the moment we landed in  Chiang   Mai  that Thailand is extremely random.  I, of course, being random myself, don't exactly mind but I suppose I was expecting a place that was a bit more charming.  It may be that I have to keep remembering ... Read more >

christmas in cambodia

CAMBODIA | Tuesday, 26 Dec 2006 | Views [483]

I hope you had a wondeful Christmas! Did it snow over there yet? Being here, wearing skirts and sandals, it's hard to imagine that kind of weather! We took the 6 hour bus ride on Christmas Eve from Siem Reap to Phnom Penh, Cambodia's capital. One ... Read more >

CAMBODIA | Saturday, 23 Dec 2006 | Views [444]

Viet Nam may be the most beautiful country thus far, but Cambodia definitely has the most beautiful people. Through our walks through the market place yesterday and our journey through the temples of Siem Reap today, the highlight was not the massive ... Read more >

kingdom of cambodia

CAMBODIA | Friday, 22 Dec 2006 | Views [429]

We have left the chaos of Viet Nam's capital for the calmness of Cambodia's Siem Reap. Only a three hour flight from Hanoi, you can sense how much more laid back Siem Reap is by even walking through the airport which to me, felt like a museum. There ... Read more >


VIETNAM | Tuesday, 19 Dec 2006 | Views [446]

Vietnam is probably the most uniquely beautiful place I will ever see. We arrived yesteday evening at one of the quietest and efficientairports I have ever been in. Much different from our experience in the UAE, or even in Bangkok. We even purchased ... Read more >
