It is Monday morning, 6:23. I just now walked in the door. I have to be at work in 37 minutes. And also, I have no idea where to begin telling you what this little “vacation” was like. But here are some key words from the adventure:
- broken alternator
- crabs (The crustacean. Shame on you.)
- Sao Paulo
- good luck
- juice at 3:45 am
- no electricity
- no hot water
- the best caipirinhas I’ve ever had
- daylight savings time
- Teacher Appreciation Day
And now, because it is 6:29 in the morning I will go take a shower. Because did I mention there was no hot water on the island? And so I haven’t had a real shower since Thursday night? Oh, the stories. Individually told, they’re believable. But that they happened one right after the other is what makes this trip incredible–in the most literal sense of the word.
Wish me luck today. I have not slept for a solid 24 hours.
