Then and Now

If you'd asked anyone 26 months ago where I would be today, Colombia it would not be. If you had asked me 2 years and 2 months ago where I would be today, Asia, would be the best guess. In October 2008, I would not be able to tell you much about where I was going to be, who I had become, what I was going to do next. But, I would be able to tell you to not be surprised, anything really could happen, right?

This is Bogotá

For the past 6 months I experienced the joys and nots of living in Bogotá. A tribute to what this trip has become, Bogotá was an expected series of changes, coincidences: life.

gringo dancing

So they say,"People who live in glass houses shouldn't throw stones."Yeah, screw that, I'm going to anyway. My glass house is insured. And by that, I mean I have permission to write this. Today's stone throwing will be directed at dancing, and more specifically Brendon's unique dancing "style".

the tourist train

Last weekend, we took a day trip on an old steam train from Bogota to a few surrounding towns and also paid a visit to the Catedral de Sal in Zipaquirá. A popular weekend outing for locals and tourists alike, the "Turistren" consists of a trip through several small towns outside of Bogota on either an old restored steam or diesel locomotive, depending on the day you go.

Growing older is only fun up until a certain age. As kids we quite enjoy it, why not? Regalos, cake, friends, clowns, etc. But even as we enter our teenage years we have learning how to drive, later curfews, and graduating from high school to look forward to. Past that, its 18, becoming a real adult and then...breaking the teenage barrier of 20.

adrenaline is crazy...

A couple weeks ago, our crazy Finland friend Tom came to visit. Of the many stupid, weird things Tom says or questions he asks, the only one I remember is whether or not I had ever been mugged. If you believe in jinxes, blame Tom for the following experience...

protests in Bogota

Today I went to go pay the rent for the month, and rather than rush to my destination as I often do, I took the time to look around. Of course, it was a little difficult not to look around today, but more on that in a bit.

visa renewal day

With our initial 60 days in Colombia having flown by in a flurry of uneventfulness, it was time to renew our visas.

a day in Bogota

Today's goal was rather epic: Be Productive. Or in other words, actually get some stuff done, as opposed to...whatever we've been doing (though to our credit, we did find a nice apartment, for cheap, which is no small feat).
