Kate's home!

Kate has returned from Costa Rica/Nicaragua after a two month long trip . She has had many adventures and seen many unusual sights. She has learned Spanish, met interesting people, experienced intense heat, the beauty of a coral reef, made many new friends and so much more.

Kate has much to tell and I hope that will unfold in the coming days after she gets over a case of mosquito induced Dengue Disease. She is very uncomfortable right now, red with a rash, headache and pain in her joints but with the hope of feeling better in about a week or so. Your love and prayers are welcomed.

The good has far out weighted the bad and Kate seems to be better off for the experience.
Welcome home, Kate. We have missed you and I think I can speak for all of us, we look forward to your tales of Central America.

(I know one of your dreams came true...getting to play with a monkey!)

Sorry you never made it to Guanacaste, Kate - I am sure you had an amazing experience though and hope you will have many more. The only way, really, is by doing what you did: travel, without being afraid of what you are going to come across. Dengue fever is familiar territory for me, so I know what you are going through but it will pass. Make sure you stay hydrated and that you get lots of rest - and do eat, although the metallic taste in your mouthis unpleasant, to say the least. Expect to feel better in a few days, and fully recovered in about three weeks. Much love, Camilla
