I have come to the hard decision that for various reasons, I will be discontinuing my blog posts for now and will resume upon my return to the US. If you would like to reach me for updates on my trip, my health, or anything else you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Furthermore, I will be periodically posting pictures of my trip online. If you would like the link to my pictures just email me! Once again, thank you all for your support and keep a look out for my updates when I return in September.
