Departure

After several weeks of delay (mostly unavoidable), I am finally leaving on my journey south tomorrow.  For my first day, I will fly into Cancun and then catch a bus to Playa del Carmen.  I have planned for about 10 days of wandering in the Yucatan and then it will be on to Belize.  My flight leaves at 8:40 or thereabouts, so it is going to be an early morning, if I sleep at all.  Methinks I need a beer to calm the excitement.  I think I have everything I need, but I am sure I have forgotten something- I never get going without a few hiccups.  Case in point- my trip from Grande Prairie on Friday involved flight delays, a frantic race across Calgary, and at some point I was sprinting down Bowness Road, dodging traffic and trying to catch my errant hat.  This was all for a one hour flight in Alberta.  Once you add foreign languages and passports into the mix, everything just gets more fun.  Onward and upward!

Wanderer, hack writer, aspirational hobo, part time aerial surveyor, geologist, forester and whatever else I can do to pay for a plane ticket. Is that sentence fragmental enough?
