The time has finally come.
I’m done with my crazy busy work week and tomorrow I’m leaving on a jet plane!
My flight leaves at 5:30am. I have yet to figure out how to get there. The MAX line runs that early (I love public transportation in Portland!) but not from my house. I’m on a different line. So I think I’ll have to take a cab to the Rose Quarter Transit Center, which will be about 3 bucks or something, and hop on the MAX from there.
I’m taking car parts with me, in my suitcase.
So, I will arrive in Veracruz at 5:50pm. That’s 3:50pm Portland time. 10 hours. Not too bad. Abby and her dear deported hubby Isnardo (Nardo, for short) will pick me up, and then we will commence the 6 day 5 night festivities. They live in a tiny town called Luma de Guadalupe, which is close to Cordoba. Here is a map.
I will take many pictures, and have quite an adventurous time finding vegan food to eat, and will go exploring and hiking and to ruins and to beaches and meet Abby’s bird, Capitan and drink cervesas and meet her extended family and play and pretty much encapsulate the word “Vacation.”
I’m not sure if that’s the correct usage of encapsulate, but I like it like that.
Also, Nardo’s 2 best friends John and Jeff are coming down 2 days after I do, so we’ll have lots of adventures!
Abby tells me people keep asking, “Where’s the gringa? When is the gringa arriving?” 🙂
I can’t wait!
I’ll be back Sunday night around 11:30 pm, so until then, bye bye to computers and phones and internets and all that jazz. Hello, Vacation!
