Vans: Off the Wall

i drove a few vans around yesterday and today. my first (legal) driving on the left side of the road. it was pretty fun/funny. the first van was a stick. man was that weird. shifting with my left hand, first gear way to the left, fifth closest to me ha. so the actual gears are the same and the pedals the same. blinker/wiper controls are the opposite. flipped the wipers on when i tried to make a signal ha. parked about 3 feet from the curb on the first try ha. oh well. pretty ready to get one so i can get out of the city and start fishing. soon i will have a van and will post pics and will be looking for names.

speaking of fishing, tomorrow i go fishing. and the day after that. and the day after that. very much looking forward to throwing some line and getting out of the city. i'm going to give Chappie, my guide, a ring this evening and then i'll see him tomorrow morning at 7:30. of course i'll set my alarm but i doubt i'll have any trouble waking up before it goes off. fish requests soon to be filled...

there is a cat who lives at the hostel. i haven't caught his/her name. this cat is sitting next to me but apparently doesn't understand english meows because it will not look at me right now. he/she is orange and white, rather portly. i bet he/she has met a lot of people.


  1. Glad to hear you made it safely. Now let's see some fish pictures.


  2. It gets easier with a couple beers...
