So, I am a little bored right now, thinking, too much in my head and I know that it is like 11 pm there. First, I am bummed that I didn't get my Christmas letter out this year. I worked on it, was proud of it and then I ran out of time. I talked about the importance of food, travel, friends and healing through massage, qiyong, yoga, pilates, etc. Maybe when i return, I will send it out for fun. I really liked it.
I have been listening to espn in my room and so I know that the Broncos lost to the Packers. Oh, and I have nick at night...during the mornings, I believe it is the BBC. Curious, no.
Right now, I am about ready to take this bloke out who is the lab with me, on his phone, speaking loudly and extremely interruptive of my thoughts. If I log off, though, I lose minutes.
I miss my phone and the ability to call anyone at any point. I know that I drive my sisters crazy, at times, but they never answer. Michaela is the "Screen Queen" and Jade works nights and has to sleep during the day. I enjoy when my niece answers and then doesn't tell Jade that I called. Jasmin is hit or miss since her phone seems to be off a lot of the time.
I forgot to mention my last meals in L.A. On Saturday morning, we ate at Urth Cafe where they close down to shoot on location. It was an organic, trendy hot spot on Melrose. I enjoyed it since it was bustling with movement and the food was healthy.
Later that day, we ate at Las Cabanas in Venice Beach. I know that I make much better margaritas, but they had all these different salsas that I loved. It was fun and the perfect sendoff. I am going to be so happy when I get to South America so that I can eat rice, beans and salsa. I am going to miss mexican food tremendously.
While I walk around Fiji, the men openly stare--who wouldn't since I stick out? I mean, everyone here is either Indian, Fijian, or Polynesian, dark hair/skin and wearing long skirts. They are extremely friendly and open. I do like that. It reminds me a little of my summer in Guadalajara when i was a guera. I definitely stuck out there due to my height/hair color.
Well, until later. I probably will check this later tonight/tomorrow and then it will be hit or miss until I end up at another hotel with an internet cafe attached. I should be island hopping and diving eventually. I can't wait. Keep in touch and keep me updated on you.

I'm so happy to hear that you made it to Figi in one piece. I started to get worried when I didn't hear from you, but I didn't want to seem like the lame sister that always worries. I'm so happy that Tom/Jan and Shari beat me to the punch-now they can be the lame ones!
The Ducks are ranked #5 in the BCS!! YEAH. We are playing #4 Arizona on Saturday, I haope it will be a good game. Game day is coming back to Eugene on Saturday, its a later game so I'll be a little tipsy before it starts. As you know I have lost my voice at all 3 games so far, but it usually comes back within 24 hrs. We are now going on day 3 and it still isn't back all the way. Last Sat at the USC game I became pretty animated as I'm sure you can imagine. Lets just say that Tab had to counsel me several times about the frequent F-bombs that I was dropping. On another note the Colts are still undefeated, yeah!!
Last night at work it was pretty funny because the poor patients were asking for interpreters.
So, have you met interesting people yet? Joined anyone for dinner? I hope your able to take lots of pictures of your travels, its the closest I get to seeing the world. Well, please take care of yourself and have fun. Your blog sadly has become the highlight of my day-keep me entertained!! I love you more than you know big sister

Hailey although I haven't seen you in years it was great seeing your post. I hope all is well in your life and that your happy. I look forward to seeing more.
