Pulled off my Facebook group...

Q: Are you going alone?

A: Yes.

Q: Can I come along?

A: Better if you don't. I can be pretty impulsive when I'm traveling. :P

Q: Which countries are you going to?

A: Peru, Bolivia, northern Chile... maybe Argentina.

Q: Are you going to see Machu Picchu?

A: Yes.

Q: Are you scared?

A: Of what?

Q: Why live vicariously through you?

A: Just something people say to me a LOT. Honestly, anyone can do anything that I do, and I've met plenty of more interesting people than me, including you...!

Q: Can I salsa dance with you?

A: Sure, if you're a girl and not my mother.

Q: Are you going to chew on coca leaves?

A: Most likely, yes. I read that they give leaves and candy as small change in Bolivia.

Q: Are you going to eat that rat/guinea pig?

A: Definitely will try to.

Q: Aren't you a vegetarian?

A: Pescatarian actually. I'll try to stay that way while traveling, but I can't pass up weird culinary experiences.

Q: Please be safe, okay?

A: I will.

Coca candies are awesome! Mark brought a couple back from his South America trip (not consciously..they were in a pocket). On a subsequent flight, I was feeling kind of queasy and he gave me one to suck on. It was tasty and settled my stomach. Maybe it's my inner addict talking, but I love coca candies!
