Blonde. Freckled. Occasionally bed bug bitten.
…And sometimes a bit sheepish about the fact that I haven’t written a post in over a month. So just in case you need a reminder as to what I look like:
There I am!! Hope your memory didn’t fool you into thinking I was more attractive.
So what have I been up to you ask?
Tour guiding. Researching. Reading. Nerding out on history (hence, the hat). And then more tour guiding. More work.
It’s gotten to the point where I literally wake up in the middle of the night reciting facts about some of the different neighborhoods in DC. Yesterday I roused myself awake because I was chanting the number 58,286 — which is the number of names on the Vietnam Wall — over and over again in my sleep.
I wish I were joking.
And thus, my manic behavior and stacked work schedule has left little time for me to write on this here blog. I’ve posted absolutely nothing new for over a month, and have barely touched my twitter or facebook page. In other words, I suck.
Which is why I was totally shocked and beyond flattered to find that this site has been averaging 50 page views a day!
Who are all you wonderful wonderful readers?? Statistics show that you reign from all over the world. Within the last 24 hours I’ve had people from 11 different countries check out my site. So cool! I know this is small game for all the big bad bloggers out there, but this is a serious confidence boost for little ol’ me. Most seem to be searching the subject “Brazil” — specifically, things related to safety and travel there. I hope this means that many of you are planning a trip to Brazil, despite the recent onslaught of bad press. I vow to write more about the country in coming months. If there’s anything specific you all would like to know about, get at me!
But that’s all for now. Just wanted to say hi, I’m back, I’ve got big travels plans for fall, and thanks for coming ’round.
