Day 2 at Esperanza started bright and early with a bootcamp workout on the beach right by the ocean. Raphael was our fearless leader and instructor for the 60-minute class. He had all sorts of exercise equipment as well as towels and bottles of water for us. And we were ready to get our sweat on!

Good morning! After breakfast yesterday morning, I headed into the city to get my blood drawn. Just when I was starting to feel better with the UC stuff, I now have a low platelet thing going.
