Hi friends! How are you?! I’m currently wrapped up in so many layers! It’s chilly here in Colombia! I mean, not all of Colombia, but up here in the mountains? Man, it’s totally cold. It’s been a good trip so far. Internet is scarce— so excuse my absence. I’m going to go ahead and schedule a post for tomorrow, while I have the internet working right now. I have so many thoughts on this trip. I probably wrote five blog posts in my mind last night– at three am when I couldn’t sleep. I took a DNA test a few weeks ago and got the results as soon as I got to Colombia— weird timing, right? So many thoughts. I want to write more bout all of it– but for now, I just wanted to come in here and say hi!
Also, can we just talk about this photo for a minute? I almost jumped out of a moving car to get this shot hahaha. We were driving along the most beautiful country side mountain and road and far in the distance I could see this beautiful pink house. I pointed it out to Marlowe– but then— as we got closer, I squealed! And started repeating “omg stop the car. omg let me out!” That baby donkey!!! Omggggg. The cutest furriest thing I’ve ever seen. How perfect is he, just standing there?! Gah, I love(d) him. I mean, at that point the adorable pink and teal house was secondary.
Our time has been good here. My biggest thought going through my head is concern over every Colombians poor colon. SO much meat. So much cheese. So little water. I literally walked into different stores and asked for water– but NONE carried water! They carried yogurt, milk, soda and whatever else, but no water! I’m sure everyone adjusts to the climate and what not, but man, us tropical low altitude folk are dehydrated. I’ve had so much water and yet I’m still dry 🙂 Oh but speaking of fiber and water and digestion— MAN there are so many amazing fruits here. All my favorite fruits really. I’ve probably found more fruits that I love here than I have anywhere else– even Guatemala. And so cheap too. The fruit situation has been on point!
Okay– I’m rambling. I have so many photos to show you guys— and sooo many animal friends, haha. But when I get home and the internet is a bit faster 😉 I hope you guys are well! Scheduling some more posts now— chat soon!!
Chow chow 😉
