Before I Die

I have been thinking about what I will do next, after the Peace Corps. Thoughts of post PC come to me at random intervals. It is an exciting thing for me, and another unexpected perk of being in the Peace Corps.
It feels as if my life has been opened up to me, and I am free to go where I need to go. I feel as if another big adventure is just around the corner for me.
A while ago, I compiled a list of some of things I would like to do before I die. Here they are, in no important order:
  • Live in a rural area of Japan.
  • Do more rock climbing.
  • Be a shepherd with a dog (most preferably in South America).
  • Be a beach bum in the Caribbean.
  • Go to Thailand.
  • Have sex with two women at the same time.
  • Become more and more comfortable with myself.
  • Have nice dread locks.
  • Go to Machu Picchu.
  • Live in a rural area of China, have a live-in housekeeper, and teach her English in exchange for her work (or even two live-in housekeepers, because it could solve two goals at once).
