Roatan Fundraiser for Medical Care

Something that never ceases to amaze me about the community of Roatan is their constant efforts to better the whole island.

Clearly since I’m writing this, I am okay.

“Just treat it like you’re playing a video game,” he tells me. “Except don’t crash – you don’t get to start over like in a video game.”

Helpful hints from my loving boyfriend.

Of course, what he doesn’t realize is that I’ve probably only played about 1% of the video games he has in his lifetime, so perhaps relating them to my current situation isn’t a helpful analogy after all.
