An interesting weekend

20130126-JBK56390

This past weekend, we did several interesting things. Parked in a living room: Made empanadas from scratch: Drove into a town where almost half the houses had biblical inscriptions painted on the walls: Drove among cows: Attempted to hijack a…

Friends in high places

The pony next to the tranquilos' truck.

It seems like we spent the last week meeting old friends and making new ones. One thing about sleeping in your vehicle while traveling is that you end up doing the RV park/campground trail. We love to park for the…

Fiesta grande de enero
