a foto of la guajira from the plane when we came from cali.
michael. need i say more?
so yesterday wasn't entirely unproductive. we did go with lido's family to their farm. there were lots of kids and lots of animals and lots of flies. her aunts and uncles cooked a huge meal in an outdoor kitchen. i caught one of her little cousin's dancing so now we are hoping to have him appear in a video for a song yet to be made. a lot of work to be done.
had an early start today doing research and getting files organized. then of course, i ate a ridiculous amount of rice, salad, plantain and fish for lunch accompanied by fresh lulo juice. mommy mallo spoils me with food and juice, but she refuses to let me take her picture.
my stomach so full that it hurts to sit up straight and i am struggling to find a comfortable position to work in.
back in villanueva relaxing in bed with ray charles ♥
we had a long day of travels yesterday. left alex's around 4:30am, caught a flight to bogota at 6am, our connection was delayed because the plane was ill-equipped to fly, soooo we transferred to another. when we arrived in valledupar the cab tried to more than triple the fare... but of course, lido was not having that! finally, we got a driver to take us to villanueva and we shared the ride with a kissy faced shaman. he read our lives so clearly it was surreal.
there is definitely something serene about being back here. not to get me twisted, we had a real good time in bogota at javier's and cali was super chill. but, here i am... isolated from the hustle of the city, concerts, parties, boys, late nights etc... it's time to be more productive again.
