Donde estaba?

I'm back!  I know it's been a while since I posted - life has been busy.  Here's a quick montage of what's been going on:

*We went to Guaduas for a weekend.  BEAUTIFUL.  The weather was amazing, we got to view all of the vacas (cattle) with Camilo's grandfather, which was way cooler than you realize, I ate a lot of fresh fruit (as in fresh from the orchard), I met more of Camilo's family and got to pet a really pretty horse named Ketorolaco.  I took a ton of photos:

Also played a lot with this little guy :)

*We moved into our apartment!!!!!  Feels so nice to have our own place and be sleeping in a bed and not living out of suitcases anymore.  Though honestly I haven't quite had time to fully unpack, so technically I am still sort of living out of them.  But I have hung up at least half of my wardrobe (we need to buy more hangers).  About 80% of the furniture in our place is borrowed.  We "borrowed" some plates and bowls from the farm, which are a 70's retro orange floral pattern that I actually quite like.  All of our silverware and some of our other dishes are currently being borrowed from Camilo's mom (along with our bed).  And speaking of our bed, I am currently sleeping on sheets that look like this:

Yep.  These were Camilo's sheets back in the 90's.  They're super rad, no?  I'm just thankful we have sheets.  Eventually we will buy these sorts of things but for now we'll take what we can get.  Though cost of living is cheaper here, things like sheets, towels, home appliances, etc. are not so cheap.  Oh well.  We'll get there.

Here's one more picture from our place, then I have to skidaddle.  I promise I will post more about my adventures, with more pictures, SOON! 

Happy holidays lovely people - miss you and love you all dearly.
