It’s over; it’s finished,
And the day is now done.
The fat lady has sung,
And my holiday has begun!
That’s right – I am no longer a teacher, and I am now officially a tourist! I’m not 100% sure that being “gringo” is any better than being “Sir Mark”, but I’ll bet it’ll be a lot more exciting!
I finished school yesterday (forever!), I’m in Lethem today, and tomorrow I’m heading to Brazil to begin my epic holiday around South America.
There’s a saying that “the journey of a thousand miles starts with the first step”, and that’s mostly true for me right now: I’m actually going on a journey of several thousand miles, but it does start with a step – we’re walking to Brazil!
Keep an eye on the blog for news and photos of my travels, and have a look on www.wolpy.com/markormesher if you get time to see an overall view of my travels.
