To do list:
– Eat ceviche
– Remember this moment
– Buy gifts that bring smiles
– Stuff medicine into socks
– Listen to the Israelis
– Don’t judge
– Never judge
– Fold life into backpack
– Remember this moment
– Wash face with silky lather
– Swim in the stillness
– Sleep sandwiched in warm fabrics
– Leave with love inside
– Arrive free from past

LOCATION: Lima, Peru – I stayed in a cheap Israeli hostel my last night in South America before catching a morning flight to the United States; I’m smuggling prescription drugs in my socks and wondering when I’ll return.
