9781439240830: Footprints on a Small Planet: Memories of Mesoamerica

In 1998, Theodore P. Druch and Maria Ruiz pulled up stakes, sold everything, and at age 58, set off, with their two Miniature Schnauzers and a Siamese cat, on a ten-year Odyssey around the world. Living in cities such as Bangkok, Nairobi, and Buenos Aires, they also spent years traveling to far-flung places at the ends of the earth like Komodo, Borneo, Darjeeling, and the remote Vietnamese village of Sapa, deep in the mountains along the border with China. Volume one is the story of their travels in Mexico and Central America in an old motor home, traveling Mesoamerica from top to bottom. Richly embellished with a wealth of description of natural beauties; vivid re-creations of life in the ancient ruined cities of the Maya; eyewitness testimony to the erosion of our planetary environment; and sometimes hilarious accounts of their adventures learning the ropes, this potpourri of travel writing, fiction, and relaxed good humor is sure to keep you glued to the page.

About the Author:

Born in Milwaukee, Wisconsin in 1939 on the eve of WWII, Theodore P. Druch, Ted to his friends, has misspent his life in various vain pursuits including an MA in Near Eastern Studies (advised not to apply for a doctorate); several years as a resident at Timothy Leary’s League for Spiritual Discovery in Millbrook, New York and later in an Ashram in Benson, Arizona; in San Francisco as a general contractor remodeling old Victorians (only their houses); as a neophyte computer geek helping his wife Maria in her fledgling software business; and finally, as a windblown vagabond, traipsing around the planet from one hemisphere to the other with Maria and their beloved Miniature Schnauzers Sherman and Schatzie. Today, ensconced in a lovely house with an open atrium in the heart of Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, Ted has embarked upon a new incarnation as a writer, hoping to get all the above down on paper before his ultimate eviction from the world writes an unwelcome finis to his adventures.
