I’ve been in the States for two weeks and I’m getting desperate to be back home. After a year of living homeless, bouncing around from one available cabana to the next, sleeping in a tent, the back of our truck, friend’s houses, my parent’s house, it was so good to finally have a place to call home. Somewhere to unpack, put books on a shelf, cook whatever we wanted for dinner, sit on the porch quietly, watch seeds sprout.
For three weeks we planted, organized, built, and settled in. Then there were two back to back weeks of hosting new friends, pushing them into waves, taking rum shots, and eating at the hotel restaurant for women’s surf and yoga retreats.
Then I had to leave for the States to do some Hollywood film stunt-doubling and Hawaii-based Body Glove and Athleta bikini modeling.
There are a few good things about the US. You can buy just about anything you want. I’ve been shopping for things we can’t get in Nica – epoxy resin, tahini, exotic herb seeds – and enjoying good beer and mexican food. But I’m more than ready to return home. See below for photos of home including drift-wood sculptures, interior views, and native creatures.
