As I said in the post (click here to read), photos from parades can usually be kind of… boring.  But some of the things in this parade were things I usually don’t see close up – nor are things I’m comfortable taking pictures of.  But in a parade, they expect you to take pictures, right?…

Here are some photos from my time visiting the multitude of performances and activities surrounding the Guelaguetza in Oaxaca.  What an incredible and beautiful spectacle! Hopefully we will find our way back in the future so that Erik can experience it as well.

Hi, Everyone!  Sorry for the delay in posts lately.  It’s been a relatively hectic month.  After two weeks in a temporary apartment, today I moved to a different apartment in Oaxaca, where I will remain until Erik arrives later this fall (we hope).

Here are some photos from my return visit to Guatemala.  While it’s true that Erik and I had already visited some of these places and posted photos from there, it’s nice to revisit things, right?  Actually, most of these shots are completely new because of the destinations to which Chuck and I went and the…

After having met with the orthopedic surgeons at the VAMC (after lengthy delays and still more to come), Erik is now aware of the surgical and nonsurgical options regarding his unique ankle situation.  (If you need to get caught up on that situation, it is outlined in our Big Announcement post.)  He will first attempt…

Posted from Oaxaca, Oaxaca, Mexico.
With Erik in the U.S. meeting with doctors and Joe currently exploring the various public transportation systems of Guatemala, we seem to have stumbled into a drought with our posts.  Therefore, we hired out for this one.   Today we present a little retrospective of all (or most) of our canine friends…

Posted from Mexico City, Distrito Federal, Mexico.
After three somewhat traumatic weeks in Puebla (let’s just say that my “friend” in Puebla is no longer my friend and I’m very grateful the whole ugly situation is behind me), I had the amazing good fortune of being able to spend a week with a very dear friend from Minnesota in Mexico…

The Food of Puebla
Let me start off by (re)affirming that I like food, I like to cook, and I really like to eat.  And because I am on this trip, I feel some of you may be interested in some of the fun foods of the areas we are exploring.  But…

Here’s a little update for everyone wondering what these two now-stationary globe-trekkers are up to.

Erik had a wonderfully productive few days at HQ accomplishing many Apollo- and Maggi-related chores with the help of Joe’s parents.  Such tasks involved…

Hitting the Pause Button
So… we are just a few days away from our One Year Anniversary of being on the road.  It should be a time for celebration, but sometimes life doesn’t always work out the way we expect.
We’ve been alluding to a big game-changer of an announcement for a couple of weeks,…
