Today we took a taxi to the bus station, rode a bus for 2 1/2 hours to Rivas, another taxi to the beach, and a ferry to Ometepe – an active volcanic island in the middle of Lake Nicaragua. We found a cheap hostel, rented a motorcycle, rode to a good beach, rented a kayak . . .
And I proposed to Britney.
That’s right, I popped the question. I love her, adore her, and respect her, and am so excited to see what we become together over the decades to come.
Oh, she said yes, by the way. The 12-kilometer ride back to town, in the dark, was painful for us both – we couldn’t keep the smiles off our faces.
