Back from Brazil and OMG, what an awesome trip! Highlights: Isabel’s parents are so warm and instantly family! Motorcycling through Chile’s narrow, winding mountain roads. Colonial villages with quaint B&Bs and a heritage steam locomotive. Surprise rock concerts that last all night long. Amazing wildlife along the Rio Mutum. Music, art and architecture of Savador. World War II history in Uruguay. And, I did start a short story.
