Lighter Load

It has been a while since we last updated. Mostly because my Mom told me that if I didn't have anything nice to say, I shouldn't say anything at all... So, instead of focusing on the fact that over the last two weeks we have been getting a first hand education on the finer points of theft and corruption, I will focus on the fact that my bag will now weigh a lot less as it will no longer be burdened with heavy things like cameras, computers, ipods, SD cards, USB sticks, passports, and cash (man, what a relief. cash is really heavy). It would have been a pain to come home after a year of travelling and have to sift through all those beautiful pictures of unforgettable experiences and memories, I should be relieved to have had this weight lifted. More good news is that I now only have one piece of luggage to worry about. It was kind of a pain carrying around two bags anyways and really, can you blame the guy, he needed something to haul away all our stuff in.
Don't worry Mom(s), we are safe :).


  1. O my God!!! I'm sorry you two. Just try to remember that what comes around goes around, and that hopefully whoever did this dasterdly deed will get back what he gives. How disheartening it must be for you two. Our thoughts and prayers are with you. We all love you and are glad that you are safe. Love the Stellas

  2. Hi my little Darlings... finally a note from your traveling gypsy Aunty! This is the first time I've stopped moving long enough in the last year to sit and read about someone else's adventures and what a drag to see that you've been robbed! It's such a terrible feeling to lose all those items. Were you able to get any of your photos downloaded somewhere? What an awful thing to happen, but as you said, at least you're safe and the memories of your adventure can never be stolen. Keep being a bright light in the universe, the negativity of others can't dampen your spirits! Shine on!
    Lots of love... Aunty Ruth
