I first met Cha when she was fifteen and I was eighteen. That's an eternity ago--two full decades. When we met neither of us had even been alive for two full decades.
She's 35 today, and I wish her the happiest of birthdays. I also thank her for the crazy life we lead together. It's been a wild ride across fifteen countries and four continents (so far).
The photo is of Cha braving the Ik-kil Cenote, somewhere in the Yucatan.
