The fun begins:

The more things change the more they stay the same.
Got a call from Frontier Airlines yesterday to say my flight from LAX to Denver was canceled due to "routine maintenance" (I booked this flight in June  - you would think they had figured out the routine part quicker than three days before departure). I will now have to lay over in Denver New Year's Eve.
Not satisfied to change that aspect they also changed the return flight leaving me with another night expense in Cancun but also another lay over in Denver with accompanying cost of yet another hotel room.
Frontier is now on my naughty list.

On the other hand I have great expectations for this trip and the time spent with these young people.

Looking for the bottle of Off I had left over from the last trip - economy size.

Everything is laid out on the bed and I am about ready to go.

Two Days to Take Off for Global Gathering

The new year is taking off at the same time as I am.
By Jan 1 I will be in Cancun preparing for the many volunteers coming to help with the 200+ young people who will join us Jan 3.
We have a great team being led by Scott & Gayla Congdon and all the Amor Staff along with the onsite couple Jordan & April Congdon.
I am looking forward to connecting with Gilberto Figuroa who has been so generous with his resources in making the dream of Cienega possible.
You can learn more about this dream at http://www.amor.org/Cienega.
