Mike returned home safely this evening. He was out of cash but the plastic had stayed in his wallet and there are still dollars in his account. I give him a lot of credit for that. 28 hours on a bus on the way down, 31 hours on the way back home. Better him then me. He had a good time, did not acquire a tattoo, but did add a piercing, to his ear. I looked at it and simply said, "make sure you wash it with peroxide."
I'm mellowing, he's learning, that's how stuff happens.
