Coming Home
on Jun 13, 2009 in Christian Hooray for Spirit Airlines and their reasonable one-way deals from Bogota to Los Angeles! Looks like I'll be coming home on Sunday, June 28th, probably at night. When I book the flight and have an exact arrival time, I'll let you all know. I'm very e...

Cali, Colombia and first thoughts of Manizales
on May 11, 2009I'm loving Colombia! I'm having all the same feelings I had when I first arrived in Brazil almost 8 months ago. There are a lot of similarities between the two countries, most notably the confidence and friendliness of the people, the diversity of th...
