I spent most of my paycheck sending flowers, paying for a mariachi band to show up at her house and serenade her, sending her an endless supply of Vermont Teddy Bears. I can vividly remember spending hours of holding in my stomach so I could send her a photo of myself that I wasn't embarrassed about!
She is loving, caring, passionate and, luckily for me, organized! I would be lost without her in more ways than one.
All I can say guys is that if you ever have the opportunity to visit Colombia - Go!
This is my son Gregory who is a physics major at University of Southern Maine. We have some great conversations and debates on a variety of topics, as long as I can keep him off of the computer and video games...ah well, I guess it's time to forget about curbing that vice!
Greg is a great son, he is intelligent, supportive, compassionate and responsible. He has never given me cause to worry or fret. I love him dearly and am incredibly proud of him.
Caitlin is passionate to the extreme and it has taken her on many journeys, some beautiful and exotic while others have been dark and lonely.
For someone so young, she has done much more than most people do in their entire lives, very much like her dad. I love you very much.

More importantly was the food, it was awesome!! Now one thing I learned, I had somehow assumed that the farther south you went from Mexico the spicier the food would be (I have no idea where I got that idea). It is definitely not the case. Colombian food is very mild, definitely less sweet than in the US and like it is here, the food varies greatly by region.
If you will be visiting in Bogotá I highly recommend a restaurant called Casa Vieja, you can get more info at Casa Vieja we had a lovely time there, make certain that you order a Candelazo, a wonderful drink made with ... well just try one!
My brother-in-law Andres (second from right, back row) just graduated medical school so I can relax about health care when I retire! Both Alejandra (second from left) and Diana (far right) have had their Quienceañera and are the most lovely young women I know.
Lastly, a quick photo from our favorite breakfast place in Palmira looking down into the street. Seems that the Japanese are everywhere!
It seems that there are about 10 taxis and 15 motorcycles for every private car. Public transportation is never a problem. Wonder if I could get the Mayor of Palmira to help us here in Maine with that issue?
