A while ago I spent a day travelling down the San Diego coastline and taking a photography tour with El Presidente. We passed through Encinitas and stopped briefly at San Elijo State Beach. We continued south down to my old stomping grounds in unpretentious Ocean Beach. There we visited the beach, pier, and Sunset Cliffs, a little further south. We passed over the blue Coronado Bay Bridge and spent the rest of the afternoon in the park and on the beach in Coronado next to the famous Hotel Del Coronado.
I put together a slideshow of the photography tour below…

I’ve decided to stay here in Antigua a while longer. Why have I decided to do such a thing? After all, my initial plan entailed flying into Mexico City and heading south until I reached Panama City. So, what happened?
Even before I began my trip I believed that I would be able to enrich my trip by studying Spanish. I always planned to stay somewhere for a few weeks to study. Well, after studying for 3 weeks I realized that I wanted more. That is, I wanted my Spanish to be to the point where I could have long conversations with people who only spoke Spanish. In order to get to that point I need to study A LOT MORE. I’m thinking at least 3-4 months. Will I be able to study for 3-4 months? I’m not so sure. At this point I’m not sure exactly how long I will stay here in Antigua, but I do know it will be until at least May 15th.
When I set out on this journey I made sure that my itinerary was flexible. Now that I realize I need a better understanding of Spanish to make my trip turn out the way I want it to be I’m going to exercise that flexibility and stay put in order to study. I may have to adapt my lifestyle here to do it, but I have to prioritize correctly to make my vision a reality. Buenas dias!
