Feeling guilty

Okay. You caught us. I know I told you that we were leaving for Colombia last Thursday, but it wasn't the whole truth. We are on our way to Colombia tomorrow (I promise), but first we took a bit of a lay over in the states. Yes, we are back in the good 'old USA, but only for a few days. We're not in Colorado or Pennsylvania though. Instead we've spent the past few days touring around the tree lined neighborhoods of another city, one where we've never been before. We're not going to say where yet since this is only a discovery trip, but we will leave you with a few photos.

It's been a bit of an adjustment after living out of the country more than a year, having not set foot in an airplane the entire time, let alone a Target or Starbucks. We've been a bit uncomfortable with many things - $7.50 margaritas & $10 in room internet connections, but luckily we've had a lovely chaperone to help us over the rocky roads! There have also been some really nice parts too, like uber clean parks, tons and tons of green and trees & driving where everyone plays by "our rules". Overwhelming would definitely one way to describe this quick trip, but more than likely it's been just a small sampling of the culture shock that we will be re-entering into in just a few short months. For now though, we'll leave you with some photos while we're off to Colombia where we can live in our Latin utopia for a little bit longer.

We'll check in again just as soon as we're slightly closer to the equator! Hasta lluego!

And a big shout out to my baby brother Ryan on his 27th birthday today.

Hope you have a great day Ry!
