This blog chronicles our adventures in the Americas, where we have spent the past several years travelling to various parts of Latin America, learning about the language and cultures, visiting with many interesting people, and enjoying our time together. This includes trips in the last several years to many special places in Nicaragua, Mexico and Ecuador.
We have three children ages 15, 13 and 7. Nielsen, our son, is passionate about photography and videography and is helping to chronicle our journeys with many beautiful and interesting images. Maren, our 13 year old daughter, is interested in learning about the food of different cultures and what it takes for a child to attend school and pursue an education in a developing country. Andersen, our 7 year old daughter, is dedicated to walking the mercados and supermarkets with her dad and immersing herself in the beautiful colors, interesting smells and yummy tastes of new and interesting foods. We are all focused on developing our fluency in Spanish, we are intrigued by the many paradoxes in Latin American politics, and we soak up everything Latin America.
