This weekend is a long weekend because there is a festival on Monday, and we hope to spend some time outside the city on that day. The violin and the bubbles in the video above make Bogotá seem more romantic than it really is– it's a lot of buildings, a lot of pidgeons, a lot of puddles, the noise of the highway, and over 8 million busy people, of which we are two. Somedays we desire to garden or just to see a cow eat grass. Some nights it would be nice to hear crickets. But in late October, it's nice to know it won't be getting any colder. The weather will just stay the same, and the sun might come out some more. There will still be fruit brought up from hot country, cala lilies in the landscaping, hot soup, and warm sweaters. There will still be much to do, much to teach, and much to learn.
