My weekend away

I left the city for the weekend, which was a refreshing change of
scenery. I stayed at a lovely Catholic mission that was recommended
by my language teacher. I had a bit of a run in (quite literally)
with a barbed wire fence on Friday night, but thankfully that was the
low point. There was only one other guest at the place, a middle-aged
Brit who was great company. I practiced my language skills quite a
bit while I was out hiking, because the guides spoke English with
varying degrees of proficiency. I also got to practice using the verb
'to grow' because I talked about all of the different fruits that we
do or do not grow much in America and why.

I'm going to do something I don't do very often on this blog, which
is post a lot of pictures. Here are some images from my weekend. Enjoy!

These were great pictures.

BTW, are you familiar with text browsers? Using a text browser will greatly enhance your browsing experience if your access to the internet is slow. The one popular text browser is lynx and if you have OSX and above it should be available by default. Just type "lynx" w/o quotes into the command line.

And you could try posting by enabling the "post by email" feature so you don't have to rely on blogger's slow as molasses interface.

Thanks for the tip, Beany. I haven't used a text-only browser but I have been posting by email. It's more convenient because then I can spend less time online.
