Clearing Customs

IMG_6182_400.JPG

Outside the airplane window, down below, some island chain with an airport. I’m filling out my US Customs form.

11. I am bringing
(d) soil or have been on a farm/ranch/pasture.

12. I have been in close proximity of (such as touching or handling) livestock.

During the previous 2 weeks, I spent 4 days on a small farm/ranch in the rain forest where I was been attacked by a Spix Guan on a farm in the rainforest, fought a dog off of my coconut milk. In Urubambu, I watched a Macaw fight a dog over a bagel. In Machu Pichu, I was attacked by an alphecca. I held a 5 foot caiman with my bare hands in the jungle. I was bit by a dog in Lima. In Peru, I have held or touched alpheccas, llamas, goats, cows, horses, puquios, sheep, dogs, chickens, cats, fish, frogs, tarantulas, and an ostrich.

I check “No? and move on, hoping all the questions won’t be this hard.
