December 5th 2015 – we had a farewell party with our friends to get a good send-off for our family adventure. Skiing in Canada, standing on the Panama canal, following Hemingway in Cuba, watching turtles in the Galapagos, seeing a football match in the Maracana, swimming in Lake Michigan, watching surfers in Jaws, doing Tokyo/Fuji/Kyoto in 3 days, crossing the bridge over the Ben Hai at the 17th parallel and returning right in time for the Oktoberfest – that’s the plan. Leaving has been made just a little bit harder after the party – but we’re set and ready to roll now.
