Computer repair store, which I went back to today now that the repairman was in, didn't have the right size screen.
Other computer store, where the previous store said may buy my old laptop, said they now mostly operate as a legal advice service, or some such.
Now working on an older, slower computer, can see how technology advances!
Now planning to head north to Imbert. Looks like another hike over another mountain. Hopefully a shallower slope!
Even though things don't often go as expected, that implies unexpected opportunities as well as unexpected challenges.
Rode in to Puerto Plata!
Seems like a far more beautiful place, popular, compared to some of the inland stuff.
Sometimes things go slowly. As of now, I have a slow computer, slow wifi, no cash.
Still, at least I'm not going hungry. It seems like it'd be hard to go hungry here in Republica Dominicana. With the fruits and vegetables growing so much, and the kindness of many people, I've often had too much food when I don't have cash!
It's important to take care of business, even if it's difficult!
It's tough to deal with many of the challenges of the road. I would say far harder to deal with that in addition to the regular challenges than the regular challenges alone. Still, it can lead to personal growth. I feel like I have become nearer to my ideal person, although of course far from that. I often get to do things that I once wanted to do. I most often like them even more when I'm doing them than I had anticipated. I recommend taking a chance on your goals!
It hurts to face the losses. Still, there are losses anyways, one may as well face them en route to one's victories.
Over the last several years of traveling, I have had the chance to see dozens or hundreds of cities and towns, in some of my favorite countries. I have also discovered fascinating places, in countries that I did not previously think seriously of visiting. Along the way, I have tried dozens of new activities, hundreds of foods, met so many people, seen so many sights!
There have been tons of hardships. I can hardly keep track of how many times I've asked myself why I'm doing this. Yet, in the long run, I think it pays off. I plan to keep at it!
Travel amplifies the wave of life!
