I'm about to be down mainly beboping between Lima and Santiago for a while starting in November.

Going to head down to Torres del Paine and see as much of Magallanes/Antartic region as I can, other than that probably trying to hit Machu Piccu when I get back into Peru.

If you're around these areas or going to be around, post here or send me a message ^_^

so there's a guy in town with a camper posted up next to one of the plazas spreading information on the medicinal and nutritional effects of the coca leaf

if you don't know the cocaine production process takes much more ugly artificial hooha than this wonderful plant

caramel chew products for elevation adjustment, definitely a factor down here.

also coca based breads and cakes...incredible taste...it's almost like eating a big glob of hemp butter too....just makes me feel right

well i will attach some photos when the internet is being more kind to me

You say I should love myself and have more self-confidence. You've got it all wrong. I love myself plenty, and I know for a fact that I am capable of doing incredible things, both good and evil.
You say fake it till you make it. I'm too honest for that. Instead I will have faith in myself, and act accordingly.

I read your story last month about working in Alaska. I got a job in Naknek this summer. Definitely can get how it felt like jail. I fear it's really going to feel that way with this virus. We can't go into town. I'm not very happy about that since it will limit my exploring. Yet I really need the opportunity right now. Anymore advice is much appreciated.
Anyone been to Thailand or know anything about Thailand? Going in September and have absolutely no plans yet, open to suggestions!
