Simple. Twenty eight days in the jungle.

When I packed up my mobile studio in September, I was preparing myself for a month long residency. Simple. Twenty eight days in the jungle. Create a small body of work to expand on back home. Do a bit of surfing. Return and resume life as normal. 

I should know by now that every time I travel, my insides get shifted around so much that there's no such thing as going back to pick up where I left off. I should also know that I'm not great at going home when I initially plan to, and should probably always buy one way tickets.

My first stop was The Maderas Village. t took me my customary seven days to settle into the new environment and shake off the city energy. Even though I move at a pretty relaxed pace, I have gotten really comfortable with jam packed days and an obsession with productivity.
