What a year! I spent the first half of it traveling through Central and South America and the second half of it working. My 2011 by the numbers:
302 blog posts.
Here are some highlights from my 34th year:

|And then I went fishin' in Brazil and...|
|...saw the Iguazu Falls.|

|...hiked the Inca Trail with my Motley Crew. Here we are at the highest point along the Trail...|
|...made it! We totally walked to Machu Picchu.|
|Caught (and released) the biggest fish of my life. Minnesota.|
|Got to live with this lovely lady. Louisiana / Michigan / Arizona.|
|Got a boyfriend. (In his late seventies, but hey). New Orleans.|
|Lived around the corner from Brad and Angelina! (There they are, to the left of that pink house with green shutters. This photo was taken from our bathroom.) According to my binoculars, they were never there. New Orleans.|
|I became a water meter Installer. Kind of. Michigan.|
