Quick Hi
Monday, May 9, 2005

I just noticed that a link to the BDM trailer has been put up here. I was so happy, I just watched it three times. I hope it hasn't been there very long. I'd feel pretty dumb, since I've been asking everyone how I could find it. Then to find it on my own beloved site. Well, it wouldn't be my best moment. But as far as I know, it was put there yesterday, so no one can tease my apparent cluelessness. Right? Right.

Anyway, so I'm trying to decide whether or not I should go and volunteer in Peru next summer after I graduate. It is a Spanish Immersion program so I would come back bilingual. Wouldn't that be cool? I would love to go, if I could afford it, but every time I talk to my mom about it, she brings up a story about a guy who was a missionary down there. He got Krohn's (sp?) disease and died twenty years later. I know that doesn't make sense, but she's my mom and I love her anyway. So that's what is currently on my mind. To go, or not to go? That is the question. Honestly, I have no idea why I'm obsessing about it now. I don't even graduate for another year.

It just occured to me that this blog was a little more than a "quick hi". Maybe I should change the title...Nah.

You can catch all sorts of things in Peru. You can also catch all sorts of things at home, including Crohn disease (though I'm not sure how one catches that one). I knew a fellow from Australia with Crohn's and he hadn't been to Peru. Anyway, you'd have a higher chance of picking up a parasite or two there! That said, if you go (it would be SO cool) make sure you check it out very thoroughly. My biggest concern wouldn't be disease but safety.

Yes. It was put there yesterday. Just don't check the dates on the various trailer threads.

As for going to Peru, I say you should go. How many people get a chance to do something like that? I've always wanted to see Machu Pichu, and maybe you can eat a guinea pig like the Incans used to. :)
