The prop part made it into Ed's hands this morning and we are on our way, making our way norte in an hour or two. Our plan is to meet up with them in Bahia tomorrow afternoon and we'll be home some time on Friday. We are sooo stoked and feel so fortunate! I will email from there if we have time; otherwise, we will touch base when we return to Sidewinder.
The next day:
Had a great afternoon and evening in Mantanita, went swimming in the wonderful ocean, enjoyed the beach, had great Thai food at an exotic little restaurant, met some wonderful people from Argentina, and now we are having breakfast, ready to hop onto the bus for the next part of our journey. Life is great!
