Diary - March 22
Monday – Big day, went with kids, Abuelita, Alvaro, Romel and Alejandra and their kids to Chicaque Park, a nature reserve south of Bogota. Strikingly beautiful, we had a big hike down from the cloud forest, dropped probably 1500 feet along a pretty rough trail, took about 2 hours, tiring especially with the kids.
Camila and Gisele did great, actually kept pace with Manuel. Papi carried Johan Mateo in the Baby Bjorn, and he was a little trooper and seemed to really enjoy being outdoors. At the bottom we ate lunch in a cool restaurant overlooking a further drop into a valley, then luckily took a jeep back up the mountain to the top. Everyone was exhausted by day’s end.
