The Last Few Months

Submitted by Hitty Alice, Adventurer Extraordinaire Well, as you can see, while I am having adventure after adventure, it takes me awhile to get ahold of a computer to tell you about them. Also, it’s not always safe to carry a camera around in Santa Cruz. Pickpockets and armed robberies are becoming commonplace and my friend, Emily, doesn’t like to carry anything that will bring her attention. So, today she was taking her purse and (since she would be with friends) decided to put me and her camera inside! Since school is out for vacation, some of her teacher friends decided...

In which I experience a Bolivian Beauty and Strangeness

Submitted by Hitty Alice, Adventurer Extraordinaire In July, I went to the WGM Bolivia Field Retreat with my human, Emily. She didn’t have time to take lots of pictures, but I was able to convince her to take a few of the things that seemed especially interesting. First, this resort, Los Cedros, had two interesting sculptures. You can barely see me because they are so big, but trust me, I’m there.  Los Cedros Resort Emily made me sit in the center of that dragon’s claw. I can’t believe that I survived it! Next, I made sure that I went to at...

In which I learn to book surf

Submitted by Hitty Alice, Adventurer  Extraordinaire Here are just a few pictures from Emily’s poor camera. I helped her pack up all her books in the classroom, load them onto a cart and stack them in the book room. She had to pack everything else up and move it into the center of the room, so that the maintenance men could repaint the walls. Then she let me ride on the cart, too. I loved to feel the wind on my face as we traveled down the sidewalk. Emily told me it’s more fun if you put your hands in the...

In which I participate in a graduation

by Hitty Alice, Adventurer  Extraordinaire As I promised, here are the pictures of the Santa Cruz Christian Learning Center Graduation. Before the ceremony, my adopted human, Emily, let me go up on stage and look around. She showed me the speaker’s podium, where she would read a letter to each graduate from his/her parents. She said I couldn’t go up with her during the ceremony, because people might spend more time looking at me than the graduates. I was disappointed, but I got to meet so many of her students and friends that I soon forgot my sadness. Graduation Day Here...

Down the rabbit hole and into . . . Bolivia?

Submitted by Hitty Alice, Adventurer Extraordinaire Wow – What a journey I have had! I said goodbye to all my Sunshine State Hitty friends on May 08. But when I went into my packing case, with only my book and a birthday card, which I couldn’t even unwrap since it wasn’t for me, I had no IDEA it would be a 3 week journey! I specifically heard the postal worker tell Shirley it would only be 10 days! Obviously, that postal worker has never made the journey and then been forced to sit in Customs for another week and a half....
