Happy birthday to me

Opening up our accounts turned out to be pretty easy. Not as easy as picking up the cedulas though – that took all of five minutes. Much faster than the 2 hours it took for us to apply.

So my birthday was on Thursday. A group of us went out for dinner, which was very good. Yesterday (Friday) was a horribly long day, and it will be for the rest of the year. 6:45 is a ridiculous time to start school, I can’t imagine how they expect the kids to function properly at that time. We went out for dinner last night to a sushi place and Alan and I split the Osaki Boat – an enormous tray of sushi that was fantastic. GREAT food here, have I mentioned?

Today we went up to EXITO, which is basically Bogota’s version of Wal-Mart. I picked up an egg-crate/carton/whatever it’s called padding for my bed, which was WAY too hard after spending most of the last 9 years on a futon. Now it’s very comfortable – full night sleeps from now on!

To top the day off, James had a little party at his new place which has an incredible view of the city – this place is absolutely enormous. Food, drinks, dancing – good time had by all :)

    Actually, the Asian community here in Colombia seems to consist solely of my friend Alan (and possibly some people who work at that restaurant, I’m not positive). Us blue-eyed freaks aren’t the only ones who get stared at :)
