    Hi Douglas,

    Soooo sorry I couldn't make this trip, it is my dream to visit you one day! Plus obviously these three needed a trustworthy chaperone------

    Thanks! We got our butts wet on the boat today. Actually, I got most of my lower half wet, but it was well worth it. Then we went and ate street tacos -- yum!

    It's been a great trip so far! The food (and company) has been especially great. We are also learning a lot about Doug's operation down here.
