Who doesn´t like a top ten?

Iquitos Perú Friday, February 29th noon

Okay, so I didn´t like blogging my journal entries everyday. A bunch of them are just boring, and no one would be interested in reading them. So instead, I´m going to only post the ones that people might find interesting. So expect blog entries about 2 to 3 times a week. This will make it easier for people to keep up with the blog as well, if they desire.

On the eve of the adventure I might as well come up with a top ten list of things I wish to do. It´ll be interesting to see how this list will stand up to the actual best ten things I do. Here goes:

10. Zipline through a rainforest.
9. Watch the sunrise on the Atlantic and set over the Pacific on the same day.
8. Visit the Mayan ruins.
7. Celebrate Cinco de Mayo in Mexico while wearing a sombrero.
6. See a jaguar, panther, or puma in the wild.
5. Do more hiking throughout the Andes.
4. Take a Greyhound bus from Texas to Alabama.
3. Learn to surf.
2. Relax in a Columbian coffee plantation while sipping on their finest.
1. Hitchhike in the back of a truck full of chickens.

Hopefully they´ll all get done, especially the top 5! Make sure to vote on which of the top ten you would prefer most! It´s to the right.

You don't have to be in South America to ride in a truck full of chickens; that is actually quite common in your home state...

I can't wait each day to read your blogs. Stay safe and have fun.

weird, hitchhiking on the back of a truck full of chickens is my numero uno also.
