***FAST FORWARD TO BOGOTA, COLOMBIA***
Little kids surrounded us with wide eyed curiosity as we made our way up a concrete ramp at the San Cristobal Sur public skatepark in Bogota, Colombia.
Greetings were abound and once they learned Shaun’s name it would be shrieked at him across the park. For some of them, Shaun was the first gringo they had seen or met in their life. Little kids gathered around him to get a better look.
“Tiene ojos azules!” (He has blue eyes!)
“Si, el es muy guapo.” I replied. (Yes, he is very handsome.)
They continued to pelt me with questions about the US, our marriage, and what we thought about Colombia.
Everything was followed up by a 9 year old boy exclaiming, “QUE CHEVRE!” (HOW COOL!)
This is what is going to be our new travel experiences. And you know what? I’m excited about it.
