On New Year's Eve we bought last minute tickets to Bucaramanga so we're taking Elian on his first flight today. I am praying that it won't be horrible seeing as we have a 12 hour flight in our not-so-distant future. The good news is that our flight is only 1/2 hour long and that waiting for us on the other side will be Abuelita Carmen y los Tios Richard and Octavio. I can't wait to see Abuelita Carmen's superhero powers in action. I am looking forward to meeting my nephew David for the first time and a joyous reunion with my friend the Lebrija Hotdog. I will also probably enjoy spending 1 week and a half or so lolling around watching NatGeo. I'm not sure what the internet will be like while we're there but hopefully we'll have adventures to report soon.
