I flew back to the US for a few weeks on July 2nd. To maintain my US residency I have to visit regularly and keep real ties to the US, such as keeping my driver’s license current, filing tax returns, etc. I also wanted to check up on our house in Youngsville (NC) and visit with some friends.
I spent July 4th with friends in Conway, SC. I’ve known my friend Dennis and his family for over 15 years, since I went to aviation school in Conway back in 1993. For July 4th we had a great party on the ‘island’ in the back of Dennis’ farm, complete with food, drinks, fireworks and a lot of fun. After that I headed to NC and I’ll be flying back to Peru on July 17.
