Yesterday, I purchased a ticket for Colombia. I'm meeting Carolina down there right after Christmas and staying for a couple of weeks. Wooohooo! (You know how I'm always broke and complaining that grad school takes forever? Well, this is why.) I've been feeling the wanderlust lately, and I'm hoping that this trip will curb my occasional urges to drop out of grad school and move to Venice and work in a hotel.
I'll have to brush up on my Spanish, which is still passable but has atrophied significantly over the past couple of years. I was still able to book my flight over the phone in Spanish, though.
p.s. RT, Australia will be my next big trip, I promise.
p.p.s. Although I am going to Medellin, try to refrain from the drug cartel jokes. They don't go over so well with the Colombians.
