I don't mean "low maintenance" like most people, like not wanting fancy cars or jewelry or whatever. I mean it like my friend Daniel means it. I wish I could photosynthesize and generate my own heat. I wish I didn't have to think about what to eat or where to sleep, so I could just take off whenever and wherever.
This trip is so fast-paced, more stuff is happening than I can mentally process.This is not a complaint; it's somewhat by design. But it still means that I'm slightly frustrated by the amount of time it takes just to get up, brush teeth, shower, eat, dress, etc.
(another cool idea for a trip might be to not try to mentally process anything! don't blog or take pictures! it would probably be rather freeing. don't worry, not planning on it this trip.)
