We were driving from Guanajuato to Zacatecas when we pulled into a roadside diner for lunch. While we were eating, our truck was broken into and pretty much everything we have of material value was stolen, including my laptop, both of my cameras, the iPad, iPod, iPhone, kindle fire.
My laptop getting stolen was the worst. I had tons of unbacked up essays and a book I was writing, along with all the photos from Chiapas on.
The loss of my cameras hurts. Really hurts.
But, yeah, the thing that brings me true comfort in this is that the kids are safe. Full stop.
We are on our way to the US now. The little that is left of our travel money will be applied to the $7,000 worth of stuff that was stolen.
Quite a few people suggested I start a GoFundMe account for this, and after some thought, I did. It feels weird.
If you want to help us get our stuff back, the GoFundMe account is here:
I am inexpressibly grateful for the outpouring of love and support you all have given me and my family
