Isn't it? This convent was built in 1533 and renovated in 1960, but what you see here is original I believe--it looks like it has just cleaned up from a fire at some point.

Karen, what a story you wrote. I knew yrs ago was bad but not really like what I read. We are so lucky to live in the USA. We think it is bad here but nothing like that. I am sure you are having fun learning about their country. Glad you t
wo are together and able to go everywhere you want to. Stay well and safe! Stay young as long as you can!

Thanks. It was a very emotional tour and I wonder how many people have even amy idea at all of what drugs do on this level. We hear a lot about what drugs do to the individual person but not so much about what it does to the country that is
literally taken over by traffickers.

Medellin is famous in the US, of course, for the infamous drug cartel that I believe was crushed a few years ago. Do people talk about this there, or is there remaining evidence of the impact of the old cartel? I've heard that it has become
a very safe place these days.

Mario, whom we met in Bogot, gave us a very passionate and touching mini history of the suffering and terror caused by Escobar and the cartel. Drug violence has gone down-- moved to Mexico in fact-- but there are bands of guerrillas in the
south who are behind the drug trade left in Colombia now. They have caused 6 million people to be displaced from their villages as they have been trying to overcome the government of Colombia for years, in addition to their drug trafficking, or perhaps funded by their drug trafficking. Mario said we have had so much violence in Colombia we can't take anymore. It appears from what we see that people want to erase Escobar from their history-- unless of course they can make a buck or two off him. We will go on a Pablo Escobar tour soon and let you know what else we learn.

Looks like he's guarding the Banos Gratis (free restroom), but she wants (or needs) to get in.

I'm thinking more like they're married and he was out all night with a fluzzy.

Uh...sorry, those are mangoes.
12th January 2015

Uhhh, sorry. No really, on the other side are the papayas. But it's futile to call them a cart of papayas when you can't see them. I mean really...

We were wondering where you were now! Sounds like you are still having a good time. So much to see. Love Your Pics you send. You are sure the trailers in your motor home. That is the way to go! You camp ground sounds lovely. Be careful
and stay safe. Wait to here again from you.

I love the thought of a lovely seafood lunch in a quaint seaside village. Now that sounds wonderful. Thanks for all the memories caught in photos.

wish I could grow a tomato plant like that here in Arizona
3rd March 2014

And they're grown in sand 500' from the beach. Maybe there's something to that--tomatoes maybe don't like hard as rock clay? I know ours didn't--we got nada off of ours.
