My brother Rick had his right knee replaced on April 16th and is already walking without a walker or cane. The reason I have delayed returning to Aticama until the 7th is to stick around and help him with his recuperation but I am required to do very little with his quick recovery. A cool thing is that when I return for my PET scan in late June, he will have his other knee replaced and I will be here to help him.
Funny how the mind works. For seven months I have been here in Bakersfield and I almost never thought about Aticama. Just as soon as I bought my ticket that all changed. Now I find myself remembering all sorts of things that I love about my life south of the border. Here in no particular order are the things I am missing: my dogs, the view, the sound of the waves, my friends, the sunsets from the patio, the iguanas, eating breakfast, lunch and dinner on the dining patio, outdoor showers and just relaxing and watching the flowers grow!
