What I’ve Learned from Crossing Oceans

Well, it would probably take a book I’m too lazy to write. But as I sit here in the sweltering heat of Mexico, air conditioning or lack thereof has become my number one concern.

Central America Cruise Summary Day 1 Monday, 17 July 2017.  Up at the crack of dawn.
