stay on the path

Tuesday, July 21st, 2009

A good general rule is to stay on the path! A few days back, I was out on an excursion with Jael and Mateo from Pizota. We ran into a few friends heading to the same remote pristine waterfall as us. It was so nice to swim and get a wonderful massage from the flow […]
