So Andy you wonder what to do for the rest of your life.
I am just a little older then you but likely have similiar background.
I'm going to teach English in Awassa, Ethiopia. You sent picture of the market there about 6 months back.
I figure 'giving' is an adventure. Just taking is becomes boring after a time...and in the end is no life at all.
Who will care if you stayed here or there for several days a year from now???
But giving of yourself will have effects years from now.
Just my opinion.

I was wondering when you might give Brazil another shot! Anyway,dont forget about the Florianopoils area,in Santa Catarina, either. While a tourist hotspot during certain times of the year, its a little more off the beaten path than Rio. But also very friendly and a lot of fun. You would blend in better there as well, because of the whiter population of santa catarina state. Also, less crime, better infrastructure, etc.. Isla Santa Catarina is large, and you can find cheaper places on the island to live and find a beach to meet your tastes. The island is setup to provide for tourists and travelers,but there are less popular spots that you can live cheaper. If staying for a month,you could probably negotiate for an apartment. The high season is in december through february. There is also an area just to the north of floripa, that I cant remember now, that is even less well known than floripa, but offers a popular option for beach living as well. They are in short distance of one another.
EXACTLY! Just like the poem by Dylan Thomas, I want to live FOREVER and go OUT SCREAMING into the light. I don't plan to accept aging as a limitation to HOW I choose to live my life. I THRIVE off motion, learning and adventure but there are various forms of motion and adventure. For almost 2+ I have made family a priority, expanding our small businesses and now finally doing very overdue renovations to our "second child" our Manila guesthouse near the airports. I KNOW that in a few months from now it will be easy to cruise for years after such efforts and plan to take off for 6+ months maybe longer until I get bored of traveling the world and come back home to the Philippines. I KNOW what you mean about being around old people or people who act old my younger sister was OLDER than I was when she was only 16 years old. I've learned that age is all in the mind and many younger people in their early 20s discriminate against anyone over 35 years old. I know guys in their 60s who are STUCJ at being a goof off 14 year old. See you soon raccoon, Bill
Andy, you "really, really, really,really,really,really LIKE GIRLS!" (to e Hank Jr.)
I like beauty, I like the beauty of people more than nature or animals. I am not capable of loving a pet or dog more than people. I have no desire to be on a deserted island looking at a beautiful sunset alone, I know that for me beauty and love must involve people.
I travel searching for a beautiful conversation surrounded by beautiful people.
I figured out this comment, I guess Hank Jr sang a song about liking girls.
Thanks for the youtube. Yep, I was ing Hank, Jr.

Beautifully said! Nice to get a glimpse into the inner Andy.
