Ahoy Adventure Philanthropists!
 
Just before I set sail, I came across my Flickr account (remember Flickr?!).
 
I have several albums, including My 25 Favorite Photos of Central America, from a month-long trip back in 2008 through Nicaragua, Guatemala, Belize, and Costa Rica. Fun photos!

I brought a multi-vitamin, so hopefully I’m getting the nutrients I need, but still I’m a bit worried about filling my belly.

See ya on the road,
