Lebrija

For the past few days we've been hanging out in Arnold's homestate of Santander and more specifically the tiny town of Lebijra "Pineapple capital of Colombia"  Over here it is hot and boring, but there is internet access and fresh fruit juice so I think I'll survive!  If Lebrija itself is very boring the way you arrive is not.  Santander is very mountainous and the airport landing strip is on a plateau.  This means when you hear the landing gear on the plane descend you  are still thousands of feet from the ground and then all of the sudden you land BOOM at an airport you couldn't see before you hit the ground.  Fun times!  The first time I arrived without knowing this would happen I almost fainted.  Of course I was also in a propellor plan which is another type of horror in itself. Not much to see her except family time and stray dogs.  I'll spare you the "stray dog photodocumentary" Arnold has been recording...
