Adios Rio! I shall return...
One of the biggest reasons Eric and I had a blast was because of the hostel we were at. Walk on the Beach Hostel. Good times, great people. To the left is Bernard, the bartender of the hostel. He is going to University. That's what everyone else in the world says about going to college... "I'm going to University"... I'm gonna get that to catch on in the States.
So I DID end up going hang gliding. It was pretty awesome. I think jumping off of high structures and cliffs is becoming a theme for me... This is me right before we took off. I'm standing on the launch pad. You basically just sprint off the edge and start flyin'. Its pretty much thousands of feet straight down. We got about 5 minutes of instruction, practiced the "sprint take-off" one time, then just did it. I should be sponsored by Nike and Red Bull.
One of the best things about bouncing around hostels is meeting people. I have made some pretty awesome connections with peeps from everywhere. Plans are already in the works for visits and travels around the world. Even gonna meet up with some new friends on this trip!
Life is good my friends, enjoy it while you can...
So now I'm in Panama City and Mark and I have been having a blast, but it's time to get to paradise and we are not sure where we are headed yet. There are sooooo many options, and they are all great. Oh well, we'll figure it out, and I'll let you know. It's not a bad problem to have. Until next time.
