These are some of the photos from my trip.
My boyfriend (or "novio") Jairo with his mom.
Jairo's little cousin ("prima") Pamella.
The view from his grandmother's ("abuela", or we called her "abuelita" which means 'little grandma') apartment. Many people live in apartment buildings like these because they have more security.
Lunch: Chicken ("pollo") and steak ("carne") with french fries ("pappas fritas").
Jairo's other little prima Isabella with a flower ("flores") she picked for me.
A monument outside of Bogota.
Mountains ("montes") in the countryside.
Jairo in front of a monument.
A photo Jairo took of me.
They let their trees grow.
The strange building to the right is one of their newest malls. It has the only GAP, so people seem to flock to it. I had to wait in a line just to get into a Forever 21. It was very bizarre...
A monument outside Bogota.
Jairo stopped to draw the monument on the steps in the center.
Colombia has the perfect climate for growing roses. In fact, US imports a lot of their flowers from Colombia.
One of the many stray dogs along the road.
