I blame it (as always) on lack of inspiration, and time (lack of), but with everything happening in this world and with the abundance of material to talk about, I should have no excuse.
Truth be told though, I have been doing a lot of traveling; inside and outside of Canada, that I just had other outlets to communicate with people. And it has been both enriching and overwhelming at some points, that self-satisfaction is attained but never shared. Which is okay I guess…
I also chose a bad time to write again as I leave to Peru in the few days to come, but I guess any time is as good as any. I leave on Saturday to be part of a humanitarian mission operating in the slums of Lima. We will be stationed there for about two weeks working with optometrists, tending to Lima’s poor and “humbler” inhabitants. I will try to blog as of there, and post on the flaneur. I know I always say that, but this time if I have Internet access, I am going to have to; I am expected to, by the mission organizers. I will let you know though. I will update here as soon as I start posting on the travel blog. Our two-week mission is supposed to be intense and draining, as we are scheduled to see about 700 patients every day, but on the other hand, I am also positive that it is going to be an unequaled enriching experience.
Wish me luck.
