We went for our walk, down through Bello, stopped for a sandwich and a drink, and then continued round and back home, it was nice to get some exercise, that didn\’t involve racing around shops or the city! I was ready for bed last night, but Marcela was watching a program about two men, oneContinue reading “All change!”
This morning I spent preparing lunch, as Maria Elena, Sandra and Sebastian were coming, and I didn\’t want to be responsible for giving them food poisoning! On their arrival, I went with Sebastian to the swimming pool, but that only lasted ten minutes, as I was kicked out, for wearing swimming trunks!!!! apparently they onlyContinue reading “Bad Boy!!!”
Could do with more hours in the day!
While I was getting ready downstairs, Marcela was forcing herself to get out of bed…ha!ha! I went up to use the bathroom, to find that the proverbial was well and truly blocked, so a Plunger was something else to add to the shopping list! We set off just after 9am, and headed into the city,Continue reading “Could do with more hours in the day!”
Change of Plans
Todays plans went out of the window, quite early! Marcela was having her shower, when half the electrics in the house blew. Other than the shower overloading the circuit, I could think of no other explanation, the fuses had not tripped, and that baffled me… not that it takes a lot these days! Marcela rangContinue reading “Change of Plans”
Collected my Visa!
This morning we were on the road by 8.40am, and went to pick up my Passport, with the attached Visa, now I feel more comfortable, at least I will not need the return plane ticket! From there we headed back home, or so I thought… Marcela had other ideas, as it had not taken usContinue reading “Collected my Visa!”

SebastianContinue reading “Busy again!!!”
First easy day!
Yesterday afternoon, we went to do some shopping, and then at 6pm we set off with Maria, Marcela\’s mum, to the Salon where we are having the wedding. The place was set out for an evening reception, and looked lovely, albeit the colour scheem was different to ours. We were sat down, and a sampleContinue reading “First easy day!”
I am an inch shorter!
Yesterday, was a long day! We left here at 10am and Marcela had to do some chores in town, after which we headed for Medellin. Firstly we went to look at some second hand office furniture, but decided that it was too dangerous to get out of the car in the area, so scrapped thatContinue reading “I am an inch shorter!”
It has been ultra hot here today, or maybe I should say humid with no breeze, and really it has been the first day that I have felt, uncomfortable. This morning was spent cleaning, and catching up on correspondence, just after midday we left here, and went first to pick up my translated and legalised documents forContinue reading “Wedding Plans”
