Checked on in

I'm happy to report Marice and I made it safely to the Desert Springs Marriott, and checked in for our 66 night stay, ha! Flying in, I was struck by Palm Spings' beauty. Its quite literally nestled into the desert with millions of palm trees and big sandy mountains surrounding it on all sides. I love the dry windy heat, and how cold it gets at night. The Desert Springs Marriott is of course beautiful, expansive, and much to my excitement packed with geese, swans, ducks, parrots and even flamingos!!! They call what I'm about to go through Bikram Yoga hell, but who could be in hell in a flamingo packed hotel?

So on Monday it all begins. Thank you Sal and Papsi, I'm so fortunate I get to be here and go through this journey, thank you for all your love and support. I can't wait to meet all the other people who traveled here to go through this thing. I finally get to meet Birkam and understand what his yoga is all about. I have no idea what to expect. I'll get a chance to get online next weekend and report what my first week was like.

Until then I'm drinking lots of water and holding my breath... and then drinking some more water. :)
