The Way to Costa Rica

The Way to Costa Rica

I say proudly that I have never followed anyone anywhere before. Until now. Mira is atthe reins as we wander on towards Costa Rica, Panama, Nicaragua, anywhere we happen to set foot. I must say that I was at the head of our travels around Asia and North Africa for the duration of our year and a half together. Now Mira has booted me from the driver’s seat and ahs taken full control. I follow smiling.

Mira has a passion for Latin America- for some reason many young, light-skinned women seem to (hehehe). People like to feel beautiful. In East Asia the dorkiest, fralist, least attractive white men walk arm in arm with truly beautiful Asian women. They are kings of that hill. Latin America seems to be the same for women. The boys there line up to be selected by any caucasion woman that happens to want a lover.

It must be nice to be so beautiful.

Mira has proved herself a good traveler, a joyful companion, and a real good woman. I would follow her to the ends of the earth. I am. After a year and a half of traveling with someone nearly every day it gets a little easy to grow tired of them. I view my time with Mira as still being fresh. I am still enjoying this frolic.

To Latin America we go. This post proves that I have turned into a sap.
