Diary: March 27-28
Saturday – Spent the day at Romel and Alejandra’s house on the northern edge of Bogota. Saw Edward, 14 years old now and getting bigger but now real change in his situation. Played some games, ate dinner and had a good time, especially Camila and Manuel. Johan did well but had trouble napping in a place besides his bed.
Sunday – Beautiful day for a long Cyclovia trip. We walked up Calle 116 to Usaquen. We walked through the traditional market, did a little shopping, ate obleas and arroz con leche., saw some little puppies for sale, doggie tricks and jugglers in the plaza. Really cool place.
Then Mami headed home with the kids, while Papi rented a bike and rode south along the Septima to 70th street and back, stopping at a church for an outdoor Palm Sunday service. Camila and Gisele spent the night at Abuelitas, and Mami, Papi and Mateo went on a “date”. We went back to Usaquen, to a cool restaurant overlooking the plaza called Tinaja y Tazon. Johan ate at least half of Mami’s bandeja paisa, took a little walk then home to sleep.
