For those who read my blog on a regular basis, first of all ... thank you! I'm so grateful to you. During the last year I've been pretty diligent in writing every day. Lately, h with the final push to finish my book I've not been updating the blog quite as regularly. When I'm writing (or now editing) all day, I don't have much to report. And since I'm spending over ten hours a day writing/editing, I need a break from doing more writing. The rain and the river seem to be our biggest preoccupation: one more post about the weather is probably a bit boring. We don't get as much outside work done as we do in the dry season. I'm not saying nothing is going on in our lives, there's lots, but the day to day stuff that most people have already read about. Soon my book will be 100% complete and uploaded on Kobo. And the dry, summer season is also be around the corner. We have a few bookings and life will get busier with new adventures, no doubt.
Until mid to late November, you can expect I'll be updating the blog every couple of days or so. When I have more to write, I'll do so daily again.
The first year was an introduction to all the firsts. The second year, as we're discovering, is revealing a different side to the story. We're able to understand Spanish a little more, which brings a new understanding of the neighbourhood politics. We're understanding the more subtle dynamics of the country, the people, the culture and so forth. Everything is deepening, with more layers to uncover. The learning is not over. Thanks for sticking around to follow our journey.
It appears I've caught the writing bug ... I'm already thinking about writing my second book. But first, a little rest.
