1am Xmas Day, Tunja

By 1am on Xmas day, after a big feed and plentiful drinks, the party was beginning to flag a little. So Pati's Uncle Juan decided to crank up the car stereo again. The music is a dance mix of Colombia's most famous vallenato artist, Diomedes Diaz. This was then followed by lots of shots of a Scotch whisky that I'd never seen before! It was closer to 3am before we finally got to bed.

Christmas Confessions

This blog's stuck in Cambodia, and confused friends keep asking where we are and what we are doing. Well, a confession: we arrived in Colombia at the end of October. After a trip through Australia, New Zealand, Chile and Argentina. I've been putting off updating the blog for a variety of reasons, but mainly from sloth. And the longer away we got from the last blog post, in terms of time, distance and memory, the more it seemed like an irrelevance to anyone else to recount the events of the diminishing past. But I never intended to abandon the blog, and I don't intend to let the happenings of the last legs of our journey to Colombia fall by the wayside as my inadequate memory continues to disintegrate. So, a proposal for a protocol.
