continually amazed at how Small a World we live in

This morning we were eating breakfast at Waffle House in Brevard NC while reading our friends Blog on our iphones, they are in China now getting their new adopted daughter. Than this afternoon we took a drive on the Blue Ridge Parkway and stopped at the trail head for Mt Pisgah, the highest point in NC. There was a group of about 10, 12 year old boys standing around with packs and mats and a few adults. We asked them if they were starting or ending. They were waiting to start. They said that they were at wilderness camp and this was one of their outings. Eight weeks, one of camping one back in cabins at the base. They were from all over, Baltimore, Mississippi, Oregon, Texas and one from Mexico.

Mexico? Where?


Really? I’ve been there.

Yea, you know Primas?

Yea, the place upstairs, Italian.

My dad owns it. He’s American my mom it Mexican. I love it there, I miss home a lot. For the past 5 years my parents have sent me to some camp in the US for 8 weeks in the summer.

Well, next time we’re there we’ll look you up.

That would be great, see ya, we’re headed to the top of the mountain now.
