OHh Madre, I love to hear from you!
I am glad the greenhouse is good, have fun with those stickers. I am safe and happy, in Bucaramanga. Will try to upload more picts one day, but the computers here are all slow. Everywhere I go seems VERY safe because there are police everywhere, even special police called polizia tourismo, who give you free maps and information. Very nice and all ready to help out. THe food is great too...the iron stomach has no challenges here. Love you lots, give Dad a hug for me!
Hell yes there is Guero! Iquitos will welcome all of the Canadians with open arms (I hope). How is school going down there? What do you find most different about teaching in Lima compared to Calgary? Como es tu españiol? Que bien, has recibido mi postale, I did not know if it would make it. How are the PIsco sours? Have one for me and I will see you in May! Now, off to the land of eternal fun!
PS yesterday I went climbing and it was bitchin, I think you would have liked it!
Andean Adventure is going good still. I do not think I could have a negative impression of this place, after everything that has surpassed my expectations already! I am in Bucaramanga, a funny city. I was trying to go hiking on some glaciers near here, but the park is closed, so next time I guess.
I should get back to the travel deal, but love ya, give Grandpa and Grandma a hug for me!
Snow storm? Well, I am on my way to Santa Marta to do some SCUBA in some coral reef...so snowstorm is a thing of the past haha. Suckers! OK, sorry...I hope the weather gets better there! The fun is all over this place, and what a perfect place to come, everyone things of this country as a huge danger, and so far its everything to defy their expectations. I am in love with COlombia!
Hope all is well with the garden, and you have an excellent season!
HAha, I love it, I can not wait to treat you to a pisco Heather when we get to HUaraz! I am in Bucaramanga. If you have time, do go to SAn Augustin, I think you would really appreciate the serenity and tranquil scenery it has! The site is handy, and I love the messages, keep em comin!
Beso grande a ti,
Buenos Tardes! Ahhhh que bien!
Donde van a estudiar españiol? Pueden enseñar mis padres!? Ja Ja! Quiero hablar con ellos en españiol! Desfrutan mis fotos, regresan a Mexico para apprender mas, y por favor, dice hola a tus hijos de yo.
dont work too hard ehh Mike¡ I think if I remember correctly in every STAS class (besides the ones where we were talking) you were "taking notes" on your laptop. Live it up wherever you are, even in class surfin the net! How are the toys holding up? Have you been playing in all the snow up there lots?
Hey I love to hear from you and have ZERO time left, but will e-mail soon, glad to hear the postal made it, keep on rockin and cheers, see you soon, besos grande!
Glad to hear you had achance to get out riding, but followed by snow the next day, ahhhh...theres Calgary for ya. I am sitting here looking at the ocean, exactly where I want to be when I read that there is 20 cm of snow at home! THe gardens here are so incredible, and I have had the pleasure of seeing orchids in the wild which is truly stunning! As well as bromeliads, lantana, and so many others. I will try to post more picts later on when I can get faster internet. Until then, enjoy the stories and have a beautiful day up in the great white north!
Ohh fog. How blah! I am in Santa Marta, on my way down the coast, all is wonderful, love you!
Always safe, safety 1st Jo!
Hope all is well out there, peek down inthe valley and keep ém in line in the greenhouse every now an then!
You should go on a trip. It would be something you never had regrets about, and something your entire life would grow from! The world is your oyster, and you are young, do it while you can, while we all can!
I love hearing from you Gisy! Good luck with everything in the greenhouse this spring! Have fun with a new car, and say hello to the GOdafather for me,
love you guys!
Que bien Mama! Estoy muy feliz a hablar contigo en españiol, podemos apprender juntos!
Can´t wait to see ya chica, WOO HOO regarding your flight, I should be there a few days after that, will give more deets closer to then! Enjoy your final month (time WILL fly!!!)
Hola! Yes it is very strange you can go to where they make the drugs, but good in a way. I guess its too much of a waste of time to go hunting 3 days into the jungle, there are so many random paths out there, and its not like one big factory, just a little shack and a dude mixmastering the coke. The guy who gave us the tour told us he just torches the place if they see military. I am sure sme of them get busted...ahh the war on drugs...
hehe, Love to hear from ya, give the Abuelos a hug and kiss for me!
Wow, 80 degrees! Que suerte para ti! By tan you must mean lobster red. I am a stupid gringa and tanned all over, except my pisco Heather stomach is fire red. Idiot! I am loving Colombia. Thank you so much for the time spent to gove me tips and hook ups, they are takin´me all the way baby! I am pretty pumped to see you in Huaraz, Huayhuash wont know what hit it. Are we hittin up alpomayo base camp too? Lets rock it in Jatun Machay also. AHHH I cant even wait! Make sure to pack your party hat, climbing and dancing shoes, and start to get excited because hasta pronto!
Besos grande Bonita!
Hey there, I dont have lots of time to post today, but I like to say hola to my peeps, otherwise I am to busy living it up! Jessica, I hope you are too...we forget how bad ass Canada actually is...have you been ridin at all¿? I sure hope so. Do a run for me, and I will have a Cuba libre for you, a good trade.
Thanks honey...I actually have met someone who reminds me of you...it is interesting because I currently don´t know you really well...but she is your kind of person. YOu would love this continent, the rich biodiversity and cultural diversity tantalize the mind!
de nada, con mucho gusto, que es el thema a tu precentacion?
Todo perfecto, los Colombianos esta mas loco que a yo, gente divertido y amable, pero extrañar HUaraz, estoy feliz para regresar, hasta Mayo!
Get your party hat ready Javier!
Well, the adventure wont stop here thats for sure! I will head to Huaraz, Peru, after I am done with this splendid place, and after that, who knows what! Mexico is my final destination, going out with a bang! Hope all is well with the ninos!

First of all, I would like to say estas lo mejor Colombiana que yo conozco, y tambien, lo mas hospitable persona en todo del mundo! Tienes una mente positiva, y confianza, y por estas razones estamos get along well (jajaja ...Spanglish). I'm glad you like my moves, I'll be here for 2 more weeks for your pleasure, pero, por favor, estas flirting conmigo, un poquito de respeto Cata. Jajaja, I will see you tomorrow Rockstar Chic!
Al203, que bueno a escucharte!¡ Como estas, bos¿? Ahora regreso de una 4 dia camina con pasos bonita. Fui con Angie y sus amiga Carolina, 3 mujeres de poder en QUebrada honda...super linda y tambien una vista de devestacion a la media ambiente (environment?¿)...porque you ask...porque hay mucho minas aca...super horrible...hay una de oro...cyanide heap leaching...the process to extract the oro from the ore...super un-cool..I could get nerdy here but I won't Al203 (wink)!
Will post more lindo fotos soon, he subido Vallunaraju, MY FIRST ever leading a team of cool people over a glacier, it was alot of fun, tiny bit stressful, but wonderful.
ALso, with ANgie and her amiga we made a sweet music video in our camina...like the cool ones you see of the cholitas, on all of the buses, playing that horrible sounding musica.
Wish you were here, but know you are enjoying every bit of Argentina!
Besos de Huaraz, expect more e¡mails now that I am back in town...
