I Have Arrived in Colombia After Nearly 10 Months of Anticipation

My flights (Philly-Atlanta, Atlanta-Bogota) were uneventful. I sat next to a friendly Colombian student and we chatted for a while. He goes to university in Arizona and is going home for the first tine in 2 years to visit friends and family.

I knew i finally arrived after hailing a taxi and listening to some salsa music all the way to my hostel. I wish that all of you could see me now. I have one of the biggest, longest lasting grin on my face. I am so happy to be here!

It was deja vu seeing Bogotá again, especially arriving to my hostel. I remembered everything from last August and to realize that i made it all happen; to be sitting around a table chatting with other travelers in one of my favorite places is the best feeling.

ay yay yay yay…………que bonita es esta vida! (ay yay yay yay how beautiful is this life!)
