The Who/What/When/Where of it All (via leahdoesperu)

I want to warn everyone that this post will be a bit long….I want to go ahead and give details on the when/where/what/hows of what we're doing in Huanchaco and Ciudad de Dios before I start posting on random things like food, surfing, more doors that i've run into, etc. Sound good?

Heading out (via leahdoesperu)

Leah is my youngest daughter. She just graduated from the University of North Carolina school of Public Health, with a bachelors in Public Health, with many honors, including Phi Beta Kappa!
