What a start
We have been in Bogota for about a week. Looking back it is amazing we made it passed the first weekend. We actually arrived in Bogota on a Wednesday night; made it to our apartment around 10pm and then left for Armenia in the coffee region (by plane) the very next morning. I was so tired the day we arrived in Armenia it was difficult to even have a polite conversation. All of us were tired. In Armenia, a few of us became ill. Andy and Abby got the worst of it and vomitted through one of the nights. Armenia is a lush, beautiful part of Colombia. We went horseback riding to a waterfall in the rainforest while visiting a National Park. The MCC retreat seems long ago now. We met all of the 20 or so MCCers and they are all seem to be great. Although it was a ridiculously hard way to start our time, I look back at how hard it was and actually gain strength to make it through our "normal days" here in Bogota.
