im in the country of colombia, in an internet cafe. i cannot find the apostraphe button. some updates on my trip thusfar
for 2ooo pesos (about a dollar) i bought a raffle ticket for a sizable pig, a cerdo, that was trapped in a cage pulled to town daily by a man on a bicycle. If I win the pig I plan to free him and then slaughter him and make lots of Colombian friends quickly.
You may notice that I now write at sixth grade level. That´s because my spanish is at a first grade level so my english has regressed with my brain perpetually exhausted by my feeble efforts to communicate here.
Also I´m entered in a raffle for a motor scooter and athother for some nice cookware. These were free with my other purchases. I´m under the alias of Maicol McLane just in case the criminal element is tracking this wealthy gringo.
I´ve wasted ten minutes of my 15 here. In summary, Colombia is a fantastical place- like the lord of the rings movie with more coffee bushes and things assembled from bamboo. The people are friendly and the refreshments are exceptionally affordable. We´re in a small town straight from a Garcia Marquez novel with a firetruck as old as I am. Next we go to a larger city where it´s illegal to have a male passenger along for a ride on your motorcycle because of the high frequency of assasinations. Female passengers are acceptable as long as they have a helmet and jacket with the license plate number clearly displayed.
More to follow. Photos even.
