Kudos. What a wonderful adventure. Simultaneously invigorating and peaceful to read. I think you did get enlightened during those walks, fully in your body and in the moment.

Love it! I served in the Highlands of Papua New Guinea with two other twenty-somethings and one sixty-eight year old former nun with a PhD in Chemistry. The oldster was the only one of us to never have a health issue in the entire two years. Though she'd never done it before, she insisted on students calling her "Doctor Murrill" because so few girls and women were educated there.

This: “ It’s landlocked and mountainous, and I’m afraid of heights and love the water. I learned to adapt.” An eloquent understatement. Thanks for the teaching 🙏
