Leaving for China early Sunday morning. Working and training until then. Boise is a boring place when transitioning between 2 countries.
The Dangerous Summer - The Permanent Rain

English slang can be challenging, not only for my Peruvian students, but I’m pretty sure my Padre doesn’t know half of these either.
Having only 3 types of chip choices in Arequipa, Peru (Doritos - nacho cheese, Lays - original, tortilla chips) didn’t make life too exciting. But after standing in the chip aisle here in America for a good 15 minutes, I realized that there is a fine line between ‘choices’ and ‘excessive amounts of flavors’. I think if my buddy Miguel saw this, his head would explode.
Me llega al pincho!
I wrote an article for ITA for a writing contest, didn’t win, but they published it anyway. I think they publish all the losers so I wasn’t overenthusiastic about it, but stoked nonetheless.
The Pacific Northwest is like band camp with booze and dirty hookups every single day… in other words, just like regular band camp but with much more territory to cover and many more individuals to molest. If you wanna really YOLO, crawl into a tent filled with people who have not only fucked both genders but have been both genders and see how many pegs end up in a square hole.
My new Muay Thai gym here in Boise. Much better than the one in Peru, although I’ll never forget all those rainy nights, training on wet mats from the leaks in the roof. Ahh how I miss Peru.
Shout-out goes to Walter, my Peruvian buddy who got me into Muay Thai. Hopefully his toe is better so from here on out, after I win, I won’t have to hear, “Well ya see my toe hurts, so I wasn’t at 100%”.
