    • Rohr, it’s funny you should mention crap faces…because yesterday we were walking around this lake and this awful smell came up on us. We then realized all the plants, trees, everything was covered in a thin layer of bird poop.

      Anyway, we kept walking and made it out of there. About 50 feet later I felt a light mist hitting my face. Funny thing was, it wasn’t a cloud in the sky. I quickly realized what it was and yelled out, “Am I being shit on ! ? ! I’m being shit on!!”. I looked up and there were birds in the tree. My face and clothes had a light sprinkling of white bird poop all over them. I was a crap face.


  • LOL!!!! the home that you both are staying in looks beautiful!! the city from what i can tell with rachels finger up statues noses is very nice and looks like it will be a lot of fun!! Rach go easy on your host family when playing basketball-we all know you can get a little competitive at times and rememeber these guys are letting you live with them!!! jk!!!

  • Hey Andy and Rachel, You guys know how to turn an interesting trip into a real adventure. What are you finding the state of mind to be in S. America at this time? CNN isn’t helping much with the people side of things.

    We’re so glad you’re both safe. Your parents had indicated you would be in Chile this winter. I had no idea you’d be so close to the action.

    Thanks for the updates and do take care of yourselves.


  • You have sure gone thru a lot, and we are so glad you are safe Hopefully the quakes are done now. Take care of each other and hugs to you both!

  • So excited for you guys! I hope this experience far surpasses your wildest dreams. Excited to keep up to date on your journey and and adventures and looking forward to reconnecting in person again one day…

  • So, is Asakusa a district or neighborhood in Tokyo, and are the divisions or districts different in character to each other? —Joyce
