Hello my dear friend. I am sorry that I am not up to date with your posts. It really is my big hurdle recently with the internet. We are trying to buy a signal that will work for my son and I and allow us to be on the budget we have. If we can't do this I will continue with my bad wifi. Now you are in Colombia, good for you. The pictures are very nice the ones you took. I hope someday to travel to that sister city.

That looks like a nice place to visit especially with the festival. But that may have been affected too with the current situation. And the weather there is something I like too, tropical :)
