What an awesome 19 days!

Slowly but surely I'll be showing you my slides   posting pictures of our trip. Unfortunately for me, lucky for you...my camera quit focusing and I didn't know it until about 400 pictures later.

But...in chronological order...sorta...here we go...

An armed guard hung around the van until we were ready to go. Very comforting.

The first picture taken in Barranquilla after we got on the road to the Cartagena airport. There are many, various and sundry delivery vehicles in this city.
In the interest of time...of which I thankfully have plenty... things other than my blog will take priority in December...namely, getting ready for Christmas!
So...my posts will include lots of pictures of our trip to the States, the little bit of art I've done - or will do this month...and not too many words.

All of these pictures were taken from the van window on the way to Cartagena from Barranquilla (where I live) when we were headed to the airport.

More later!

It's SO good to be back. I've MISSED you!

  12. dearest friend, i got your package today and your delightful card and we laughed with richard as we opened it. thank you so much for my hand stitched bookmark which i will put to use immediately since i am reading a tome about George Bernard Shaw and in much need of one. I will get to sewing a little something with the bundle of fabrics as soon as the season is over since I am still really busy putting things together in the house, decorations and a few boxes still left to unpack.

    all my love and welcome home to colombia chic!

  13. You're so welcome Constanza! No hurry...if you ever use the fabrics...it'll be soon enough. :)
    And thank you! There's no place like home. :)

  14. So glad to know you are safely home and that you had a wonderful trip.
