Erlen is the kid that escorted me through the jungle, all the way up that very steep hill, to the gazebo in order to witness that amazing view. I had never been in a jungle before, much less with a random stranger who’s job it was to entertain me with his knowledge of the area of dense vegetation, but what ended up happening was that we started bonding and getting to know each other on a very personal level. We talked about a wide range of things and I grew to respect him in a different capacity than just “the guy who was telling me about stuff around us”. I told him that I was going to put him on my blog and he was really happy when I said that because he sincerely wanted to improve his skills as the guide to the gazebo. He even told me that he had alternate routes, one that would only take about twenty-five minutes and the one that we took which is much longer. That love for what he was showing me is why I chose to make this video, and why he has inspired me since the day that we met.
For my boy Erlen.
I have a few clips that I thought I’d be able to use in the episodes but after taking a bit of time to think about how I wanted present everything to you guys, I decided against it. I hope it will get you all looking forward to the new stuff that Milton and I have coming though. I promise that it’s going to be cool. If I get to do some of the things I have planned and if I can get to film some of my new friends, it will be an unbelievable year in 2013. Thank you for all of the support so far. Power up.

I have been so blessed to be able to do everything I have done in this young 2012. It’s only April and I have realized a multitude of things that will benefit me in so many ways, as well as meeting people that have left permanent stains on my heart (Anup, Leo, Antonia, Javi, etc). It has just validated what I already knew, that travelling is what I need to do. Not a tough conclusion to come to but I am in a privileged position to actually go and see these places that, at one time, I only fantasized about being able to see. I started this blog by simply writing about things that crossed my mind and now it has evolved to taking pictures and making videos but I will still write, because I love doing it. There’s nothing like looking at the finished product of a thought that you produce on paper. To me, it’s beautiful. Anyway, I’m babbling, here are two scenes that I couldn’t fit into the vlog series. I wanted to make sure that we put out everything possible leading in to the, more artistic, second episode. I’m doing it. Really doing it. And it’s for all of us.
