Hey everybody!!! A couple of days ago I visited TISA (Taos Integrated School of the Arts), a school here in Taos, and talked to a class about my experiences in Argentina and Antarctica. I also, with the help of my grandmother, who is the director of TISA, my grandfather, and my mom, made fried bananas that I learned how to make in the Thai cooking school that I visited in Thailand.
Everybody loved the bananas, but I think there was a bit too much lime juice in it.
The class that I talked to was in sixth grade and they asked some questions that I couldn’t answer, like “What was your least favorite experience in Antarctica,” (which I couldn’t answer because I enjoyed Antarctica so much) and “What was the temperature there,” (which I couldn’t answer because one day we were in T-shirts and the next day was below freezing and snowy).
Also, on Wednesday, we got some good snow up on the ski mountain! Here is a picture of me at the top of the new Kachina Peak lift:
Ever wonder what it would be like to be a ski? Here is another ski video: (By the way, that isn’t me crashing. We had an adhesive malfunction. Let’s just say the GoPro didn’t ‘stick’ the landing.)
Loved that video!! That run looked like it had lots of fun jumps, and the forest is georgous with so many tall pines. Such a cool camera with a nice clear picture.
Wow Elliot! You r a pro!!
Neat experience at TISA too!
HI Elliiot. . . .
We are getting another foot here. Good year for skiing in new england. I’ve been working on rolling my ankles more when I slalom and also swinging my hips so I can do moguls. . .
WE had a visit from our friends form England and went sledding.
Myles is doing a famine program tonight, as a fundraiser. . .
Hope you are well. . . Keep the blogs coming and shred some of the western snow. . .
Mark Monica and Myles. . .
