Internet Cafe quickie…

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.

    • we´re being safe, although reports from small arms fire were audible from the apartment tower we´re staying in when the blasting salsa music stopped for a moment. i wish i was kidding. still. its a really big city and we have excellent protective guides. this spell check is set for spanish so it thinks every word i write is mispelled.

    • har. yeah 15 is quality time. it goes so fast when you^}re paying for it and the clock is ticking, though. Damnit i will find the apostrophe on this keyboard. also there{s never time for photo uploads. crap. only 2 minutes left. i love you america, your wages are excellent in comparison to economies south of the equator.
