If you've ever visited Lima, Peru, on a beautiful, sunny day, you've likely seen the handful of paragliders sailing along the coast. During my time in Miraflores, I walked the malecon (boardwalk) several times and finally worked up my nerve to go.
I'm feeling pretty solid, although there are ups and downs. The other night I woke up at 3:30 a.m. and stayed awake for over an hour stressing about what I'll do when we get back to the U.S. Overall though, I'm much happier day to day than I was back home. I get lots of sunlight and exercise and time to explore my interests.
