Montana at Last

After a blissfully uneventful drive to Missoula two days ago, I ended up in the second camper ever in my life. Its actual name is “Georgie Boy” and thanks to a friend of a friend (yay Scott and Steven!) I had to place to land here in Montana.

According to the U.S. Census, there are only 46 Boricuas here in Missoula. I have called three and maybe we’ll connect on my way back from Bozeman. This is a city three hours east of here and I have been told I must drive over two more mountain passes. I am really glad winter is over.

When I arrive later today I will connect with a Boricua who is a Professor at Montana State. She’s been working on a great project about Latinos in Montana and I can’t wait to hear about it. Its been over ten years since I’ve spent time in Montana and I forgot just how beautiful the sky really is here. It must make people naturally friendly. They wave at you when you are at a red light.

Seriously.
