Well, after three months of ‘home’ being a vessel floating offshore Brazil, I’m leaving today. Right now I’m just waiting on my relief to arrive. We’ll have a brief handover, and then I’ll leave around 3:00. Our vessel didn’t head all the way into port, we’re simply at anchor, which means we have to take taxi-boats to shore. I have a 7 PM flight to Houston, and will arrive there around 5:30 tomorrow morning. I’ll hand over my passport so someone there can get me a Brazilian work visa, and then I’ll hop the flight to Denver. I’ll have that day to run a few errands before Rhona arrives on the 3rd. And then we’ll be off and running - 12 days in the States, and then we’re flying to Peru to see the Nazca Lines, Machu Picchu, and Lake Titicaca, among other things. I may then have a bit of time on my own in Bolivia before coming back to work September 12. It should be a great break - looking forward to it. Hopefully there will be some photos and an update on the other side, so stay tuned.
Hope all is going well in your part of the world, and I’ll catch you later.
