Go here!

I have officially started posting more often on White Bus Black Dog. I will not post on In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida suring my summer adventures. If you want to keep following me, go here and subscribe. Highlights so far: The day Paul and I got our bus converted to run on vegetable oil The day Paul and I adopted a Jack Russell terrier The day Paul heard the shipyard BOOMing The day we built a bed inside a bus I promise to respond to every comment over there! I can't promise I'll respond to comments here on this blog over the summer. Happy adventures!

Time to regain goodbye

Just read Elena Poniatowska's Massacre in Mexico (La noche de Tlatlelolco). I read it in Spanish, and it made me realize how foreign Mexico is... At some points, I couldn't understand 1 out of every 4 words! A lot of it was political, so there were lots of names, acronyms and nicknames I had no chance of getting, but some regular words would escape, me too. Living there next year will be completely new and exciting, I feel: I wont approach it like an Ecuador, though the spanish will make me more prone to enjoy my time learning. A year ago I was in Ecuador. Paul and I got there on April 11 in the early hours of the morning. A year is so long, but it is going to be longer before I can be back. I have been defending that to many friends lately.

Story from North America from Kirsten Lepore on Vimeo. Paul and I are in the market for a video camera. We are planning ahead for the summer. We want to create a multimedia blog with writing, video and pictures of our trip. Unfortunately, that will mean In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida will be mostly empty during four months... May to August! I hope you will not abandon me in that time. I might still post stuff here that is trip-unrelated, or that I just make up so that In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida doesn't lose it's 8 or 9 daily visitors. -Bethany
