Eh? Was that a horse ?

Was that a horse at 1:05 in the video clip grazing in town on the median?

Love the sound clip you picked to go with it.

Colombia is awesome!!

Are you guys crossing over this season? We have loved the last month in Colombia. We are currently "stuck" in Cali as the protestors have blocked the road to the west in several spots. We hear there might be 1 lane open tomorrow! We finally met the Kiwi's in Bogota after more than a year, so we should eventually meet you guys this year or next?

Cheers

Sara & Daniel

Haha, after a while, you don't even notice things like that. Horses, bulls, sheep, roosters, etc. Just the other day, we saw some roadkill in the middle of the road. It was a small monkey...

Definitely, yes! Let's try to meet us somewhere.

Andi and Ellen are great! Well, Ellen is, at least. Can't understand a word that Australian guy is saying...

What aussie

I tipping that Andi won't be overly impressed being called an Aussie, Gene. It could be a similar situation to calling a Canadian an American? Pretty staunch those Kiwi's, hey Andi?

Nothing wrong with that, we are. So are people from Mexico, the USA and Greenland. Geography seems to be a lost science.

Oh, and that's just North America - don't forget South America.

The problem is those people from that small part of the American continent that calls itself the United States of America, don't have a distinct collective name for themselves.

Quoting Wikipedia:

Quote:
Several single-word English alternatives for "American" have been suggested over time, including "Usonian", popularized by Frank Lloyd Wright, and the nonce term "United-Statesian". The writer H. L. Mencken collected a number of proposals from between 1789 and 1939, finding terms including "Columbian, Columbard, Fredonian, Frede, Unisian, United Statesian, Colonican, Appalacian, USian, Washingtonian, Usonian, Uessian, U-S-ian, Uesican, United Stater."

Nevertheless no alternative to "American" is common in English. The only known language to have universally accepted Wright’s proposal is Esperanto, calling the country Usono and the citizens Usonanoj.
Somehow I'm personally attached to "Colonican" and I have many Colonican friends. But that's just me.

Getting caught up again...

Question about your "shortcut" leaving Panajachel. Did you happen to go through a little village called Chicacao?

I took a shortcut to Panajachel through this town and it was perhaps the gnarliest road I've ever ridden.

Looking forward to reading about South America.

A Question About Finances

First off: haven't commented yet, but have read every post and look forward to each update.

At the risk of being impolite, I wanted to ask about finances. I checked back to the beginning and read that you sold your home, cars and as many possessions as you could.

Are you living off your savings? Have you created any income streams since you left Canada?

I ask because it seems like you left the sort of life you had been living behind and are creating a whole new way of being in the World.

Perhaps you've answered this question somewhere along the line and I have forgotten. Even so, an update on how your "financial plan" is panning out, what you've learned and what adjustments you have/will made/make would be of interest (I imagine) to many thread followers.

Thanks in advance and Be Safe and Well.
