To say that we had a good vacation in Colombia will be like saying that when Columbus discovered America he just found some island.
Bea’s family was not just welcoming to me, they made me feel like I had been part of their family for a long time. Any doubt that I might have had about them liking me was quickly erased by the time we spent together. Her two brothers have complete opposite personalities and I was able to relate to both of them, her uncles both had stories that made mine seem like short stories compared to their novels.
Her Mom deserves a whole post, but seriously words cannot express who lucky I am to have a wife with such a wonderful family. I had a couple of cups of coffee with Bea’s Mom every morning and we talked, talked and then talked some more. I have not met someone as wise as she is since my late Grandfather.
That was only half of the trip!
I also got to see my Granma, aunts, and cousins. Got to visit with some high school friends and my fifth grade teacher. All said and done, the people made the trip worth it… the rest (food, scenery, weather) was icing on a huge caked.
You have to check out the first pictures, and there are plenty more to come. I also have some posts that I have been saving for after we got back and I am sure you will enjoy them.
