We are on our way. Left LAX at 5:30 a.m. First flight to panama took us 6 and a half hours and the connecting flight took us to the Amazon River in the city of Manaus. We spent the whole day traveling and lost 6 hours in the different time zones.
On our commute to the amazon, I had some time to think about our last two weeks in Southern California. We had an amazing time and got to spend time with our family and friends. Thank you Frank and Maria, my wonderful in laws for countless meals, a cozy room , and letting us leave all of the belongings in your house that would not fit into our luggage. Thank you Tita Kathy and David for a great dinner, great bottles of wine, and my favorite cigar. Andrea and Dan thanks for an awesome weekend in Santa Monica. We loved dinner, beer, paddle boarding and surfing. Thank you Phil Licata, John Crowley, Melissa, Paris and Marquis, Tita Leo, Linsey, and Miguel for letting us enjoy a little time with you. Last, but not least thank you Denise for getting me tickets to my two favorite shows Jimmy Kimmel and Bill Maher. They were both great!
Tomorrow we will be exploring deeper into the Amazon. Whatever you do don’t say snakes.
