From Olympia, WA

Ethan about to graduate from The Evergreen State College in rainy Olympia, WA

Sarita and I are back in the USA. After five months of travel we are taking it easy and figuring out our next steps. Maybe a slideshow tour around the northwest.

I'm spending my time doing physical things, starting a garden, walking in the woods, surfing. I'm still processing what I experienced during the trip. In South America, I was exposed to the dismal outcome of a global, free market economy, outcomes like poverty and oppression. In spite of the dismal circumstances I was inspired by so many people working to create a better model, a better world. Now I'm trying to figure out how to integrate my experiences into my future work.

Thanks to everyone who has shown us so much support.

Sarita back in Olympia.
