¡Vamos ir a Puerto Rico!

Volunteer site in Puerto Rico
So tomorrow is the day -- Travel day, that is. I can't believe it's come up so fast, but it seems spring break is finally upon us.

Tomorrow night is going to be long. After a couple hour drive to the airport, a couple hour wait, and a couple hour flight down south, we have to spend the next 5 hours or so in the Puerto Rico airport waiting for a bus!

The only thing you can expect in travel, is the unexpected. Original plans to sleep that first night at a church fell through, and our bus driver apparently hiked up his prices, throwing our plans and budget off slightly. But we seem to have a great group of students, so we've all agreed to sleep in the airport until the bus arrives in the morning. Wheee!

Once we get through all that, we'll be driving out of the city and into the mountains and national forests of PR, 2,500 feet above sea level. Our week will be spent doing trail and building maintenance around the eco-preserve, with a couple side trips to visit local area.

That said, I have no idea what to expect, but I'm sure it's going to be great no matter what. I will be MIA for the next 10 days or so, but I'll try to post pictures and my travelogue when I get back.

¡Hasta la próxima! (Until next time!)
