Tonight I learned how to tie up a hammock in one quick and easy knot. And from here on out, I plan to only sleep on hammocks. They are incredible and versatile and packable. Yes, whenever I travel, whenever I plan to sleep I will make sure to have a hammock nearby. I spent an embarassingly long time trying to figure out where I could possible string a hammock up in Chicago. Any ideas you guys?
Well I will test my love for hammocks tomorrow night. Sarah and I are traveling out to the two waterfalls at a nearby park reserve to hike and camp. The waterfalls are muy bonita and house thousands of parakeets. We are taking our hammocks, some rope and blanket and will hopefully spend the night under the stars. I've got my deet packed, no worries mom. On that note, I have been bitten MANY time by MANY insects and so far show no signs of malaria or dengue. Knock on wood. hopefully things will stay that way.
I will be back in with a blog on Sunday evening to tell you of our splendid travels. Check out sarah\s blog as well, she is, after all a writer by trade. I guess she is okay for a writer and all. For whatever reason she thinks we are going to rent horses. She clearly doesnt' remember the Costa Rican monster horses quite as vividly as I do.
Until then... hasta!
Ooh, and this is brought to you by the word of the day: PINCHE which means cheap, here at least it means cheap. :)
