One of those decisions was to forgo a big summer trip in order to save money and buy a house. Even though we are only a few days into '08....I realize that it is time to revisit that decision. What have I come to, you might ask?
That plan sucks and I'm over it. I'm going to Peru.
I thought for a moment about hiking the trail to Machu Picchu. However, after talking with a friend who has done it, and realizing that I have little- to no- desire to walk 3 days in order to reach any destination....I have concluded that I will be taking a train to the ruins. Hell, I hear there is a helicopter that will take you there. I may very well do that. Seriously, there has got to be some reason why that civilization went extinct! I have to believe that accessibility to the outside world had to play a part.
Really, what it boils down to is the realization that I don't enjoy sleeping on the ground and the thought of having to crap in the jungle is wildly underwhelming, at best. Honestly--people die doing stupid stuff like that.
At the start of this new year, (a year in which I will turn 30!! Crap.) I am happy with the decisions and realizations that I have made about myself. I am who I am.....I can deal with that.
I'm going to Peru and I want a freakin' mint on my pillow.
