On to South America!

Our bags are packed and the house is closed up, it must be time for another 2.5 month trip! And it is, this time to South America. The last month has absolutely flown by, though I will say that given our transient lifestyle right now, one month between trips turned out to be the perfect amount of time. We're all ready to go and I think if we had stayed longer we would have been at loose-ends a bit...can't commit to much here because we're leaving, yet not time to leave yet. So a month was just about perfect.

What's not as perfect is the situation at air traffic control at ABIA. Given the flooding last week they are still cancelling flights like crazy, and they always cancel the short flights first. So, rather than fly from Austin to Houston instead we've rented a car (thanks Budget, only $56 one way!) and we'll drive to IAH to catch our flight to Rio. So, I guess a Ford Fusion is the new 737...
