Adios Otra Vez

I thought last year would be my last time writing on this blog. I was wrong. And I’m so happy I was. This return trip was incredible, and I want to thank Carlene once again for the opportunity. I can’t come close to writing as touching a note as she did to everyone this morning, but I do want to congratulate everyone on accomplishing all that they did on this trip. It was a really talented group, one that made my life as an assistant editor easy.

Also, to prove (to my Mom) that I did actually do some work of my own while here, this is a link to my video that accompanied Alex’s (begrudgingly) awesome piece on Toledo swords. Check it out.Β 

Finally, I need to say a written goodbye to the boys of Cuatro Cuatro. From this old goat to you youngins(except for you Alex, you’re old too), you made the trip that much more fun. They say a picture is worth 1,000 words, and since I already used 1,000 writing that ridiculously stupid Mad Max post, I’ll do it in picture form.

And so another trip is over, and I wait for my family to join me abroad once again. To everyone who came on this trip, I know you’ll remember it as fondly as I do. How else could I end this blog but to simply say “okay, let’s move on” or: valΓ©.
