My Family's Visit
Trip Start Jul 05, 2005
47Trip End ??? ??, 2006
Lucy and her family arrived on December 21. I took off from the 23 through January 2. We did some touristy stuff like visit the cathedral of salt and monserrate (previously menitoned in other entries). Then we drove (yup, I drove the work car - a huge suburban) to a town three and a half hours outside of Bogota. The town is called Girardot. Interestingly enough, the climate is hot. It's in a lake region and we stayed at an all-inclusive resort
We headed back to Bogota the following morning and got Diego to a doctor. Turns out he had some type of viral infection that required a respiratory therapist to treat him 2x daily until he went home. Still, Diego was a champ. Didn't complain and was happy and smiley all the time.
New Year's Eve mom and I went to the Ambo's house for a party. It was a great time! We danced, ate and drank until about 11:30 when we headed home to celebrate the new year with Lucy, Eddie and the sick kids. At midnight, I popped open a bottle of champagne, we toasted the new year and pretty much went to bed. It was the earliest I've been to bed on New year's in a long time. I got a chance to talk with my las vegas friend just after midnight which was really nice
That just about wrapped up 2005! No resolutions for next year. Why put pressure on myself when I am happy with the way my life is now. Colombia has been great so far and a heck of a lot warmer than DC! I miss my friends, especially my new york crew. I had gotten use to spending new years with them and running the midnight run in central park. But, it's amazing to think how much life can change in a year. Let's see what next year has in store for me!!!
Love you all! Thanks for reading.
