What fun we had in Cartagena with Luis, my formerly sponsored child (he’s an alumni of the program, and of the Leadership Development Program).
All our cameras were busy throughout the wonderful day we had together.
We had a chance to take a classic “Abbey Road” pic in Colombia.
Lunch was at a typical Colombia restaurant where we could order “Bandeja Paisa” — an assortment of traditional items: plantains, avocado, rice, chicharron, egg, fried cheese, yuca, beans, sausage and “country flag.” Delicious! We had a long discussion with Luis about whether astronauts really landed on the moon or not. I’m not even sure if he agreed with the proofs Sarah shared with him from her work at NASA, but I’m glad Luis thinks deeply and carefully about all things.
All too soon it was time to say farewell again, but our fun memories will always stay with us.
Jazmin did a great job translating for us both in 2013 and again this year. What a treat to see her again, too!
We went back to the hotel to visit a while longer and then to say our farewells. I love you, dear friend!
