Let’s see, what’s been going on with Sprinter Life the last few days? Nothing very exciting really.
I’ve been hammering away on an Outdoorplay project, working 10+ hour days and over-all being a pain in the ass to be around (sorry Stevie).
Meanwhile, Stevie has been attending to our daily life. This includes all the gnarly projects that feel impossible to accomplish when you’re living in southern Peru.
Little things, like getting our mail sent down from the US so we can do our taxes. Yeah, the box is currently held in customs in Lima. Will they release it? We don’t know. Stevie has been on the phone and email with with the ministry-of-importing-something-or-another-department. It’s only our most important mail from the year. Thanks Peru.
And then there’s the doggie document nightmare, which entails shifting through hoards of paper work while talking to an Arequipena vet, trying to figure out what we need to get Kiki into the next country. Yeah, that’s a fun job.
And of course she’s been on Sol-Patrol non stop since I’ve been glued to my computer screen. What a wife I have. A better partner in life I could not imagine.
People warned us about this, but it seems like Soleil is growing so damn fast. She changes every day. Every day she does something new. Her latest thing is laughing. Right now it’s random as to what will get her laughing, so I find myself doing all kinds of stupid stuff until I trigger the giggle. I never thought I’d be “that guy”. Oh well, It’s worth it. Her laugh melts me.
We did get a chance to hook up with our friends from Ruined Adventures, Brenton and Shannon. Had a great couple dinners and even took Brenton down the river. These are some cool cats right here. They headed off into Bolivia, but we’re hoping to regroup with them in Mendoza in a few months.
We’re not really sure how much longer we’re going to be in Arequipa. Right now it totally depends on this ODP project I’m working on. We have a pimp set-up at Gustavo’s with smoking fast interent, so it’s hard to leave that until the project is over.
We’ll see. Could be a day… could be a month. That’s Sprinter Life.
