Jane Goodall is my rockstar

Jane Goodall is my rockstar

Up until today I thought EVERYONE knew who Jane Goodall was. Apparently, I was wrong seeing as everyone I told I was going to a Jane Goodall talk that night had no idea who she was. I shared this concern to my mom and she reassured me that I was the weird one, and that…

A little midnight ramble…

Six years ago today I went to bed like any other day, not expecting that in less that 24h my world would be moved upside down and broken. I don’t remember anything too particular from that day, watched some funny videos with my brother on youtube, went to bed. No red flags, no warning, nop,…

Travel Day 1

Monday September 17, 2012. 14:40 Well ,I’m here! In the waiting room…waiting. The flight is a bit delayed apparently because boarding time was at 2:15 ant its 2:40 (I hope I’m in the right place). I still feel very anxious and nervous, not about the flying but about the whole getting in the country, not…

My battle: Getting to South Africa

I’m Colombian, I’m proud of it but damn it can be seriously frustrating at times, mainly when it comes to traveling. Having that burgundy red passport is like having the coodies or something, any consulate, embassy or airport will simply look down on you or catalogue you as “guilty” for drug dealing, drug consumig, drug…

Summary

It feels like I haven’t written in forever! I really miss having my space here to get thoughts out into the world but these past weeks have been crazy. So, this post is going to be a little summary of my life recently. Birthday celebration – Last Tuesday (July 31st) I had a dinner celebration…

Happy Birthday to Me!

Happy Birthday to Me!

This weekend was my 24th birthday, no big bash, no big celebration, just enjoying the beach, watching the olympics and eating way too much. I went to my parents friends’ house in Bijao with my parents and 2 other couples friends of my parents, it was very relaxing and sadly there was no sun so…

To start with, YEY my picture of Rudolf was one of the favorites for the Paper Mama Pet Photo Challenge..although for some darn reason I can’t seem to get the button to work, all I get is this:  <div align=”center”><a href=”http://thepapermama.com/” title=”The Paper Mama Photo Challenge” target=”_blank”><img src=”http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7049/6973777489_f5b60d9504_o.jpg” alt=”The Paper Mama Photo Challenge” style=”border:none;” /></a></div> Clearly…

Carta abierta

Amigos y familia, en unos días estoy de cumpleaños y en un mes recibo mi diploma de graduanda de Antropología de la universidad. Les escribo contandoles mis planes en los meses que vienen y una *sugerencia* sobre algun regalo que quiza esten pensando darme. Para mi pedir cosas no es fácil pero en este caso la…

The crazy lady on the plane? Yes, that would be me

Yes, I am the crazy lady on the plane. For the first time in some years I was actually calm about flying, I was sad about saying goodbye to Pacho and my friends and closing that whole stage of life. So, I get on the plane almost last, my eyes puffy and my nose red…
