We have been busy little ants this week, collecting food and carrying it back to our heap. Here are some of the ways we have spent our time over the past week,
Cleaning and oiling the teak in our boat
Making a table
shopping, shopping and more shopping
...and leg waxing, but don't worry, I won't show you the photos of that. And Algebra lessons. Yes. Some documentaries about the Universe (given to us by our friends Andrew and Elenora) have made me interested in maths as the language of science. Yesterday we just happened (in the small town of Golfito) to bump into and meet two professors in Mathematics and James has been teaching me how to solve equations. I wish my maths teacher from high-school John Rauris could see this, I swear it would make his year to know that i am getting interested in maths- he tried so incredibly hard but i was always happy to doodle in my book instead- or sit in the corner playing guitar.
I even bought a pair of nerdy glasses because I thought I might meet more nerds who can teach me things that way... not sure if that's how it works (perhaps you don't need to look like a nerd to be one).
James has gone to the port captain as I write to sign us out of Costa Rica. We have HEAPS of food but we are still waiting on our satellite credit so we should be ready to leave the day after tomorrow. Not sure what to expect. Sea-sickness? Exhaustion (from doing the night shifts)?Humility at the vastness of the ocean? Maybe it's best not to expect anything.
