Amazingly Crazy Days Of Flying


48 hours after waking up in Boise, I am finally rested and showered in Medellin. 
My flights got so screwed up.  First my flight from Denver to NY was delayed, which I actually welcomed.  Then the flight crew from NY to Ft Lauderdale was put on a mandatory rest hold by the FAA, so I didnt get into Florida until 1pm, which was when other flight was getting into Medellin.  So I had to change airlines and airports to get into Medellin. 
I had to take a bus to Miami, then fly to Bogota, then transfer to Medellin.  After a ton of confusion checking in at Miami, they said they put me on the best flight to get me to Medellin the soonest.  That was great, until I had to wait an hour to get my luggage at Medellin because it didnt make it on the same flight I did.
The actual flights were really fun, and I met some great people.  Three of them were from Bogota.  On the flight to Medellin, I met a man whole spoke very little English, but he proceeded to give me an hour long Spanish lesson nonetheless.  Way fun!
I havnt made it out of the hostel yet.  All the twisty roads are intimidating me!  Plus, Im still trying to figure out how to type on these Spanish layout keyboards.  I cant figure out how to type an “at” sign and an apostrophe.  Im sure Ill figure it out as soon as I ask for some help.
Right now, Im surprised Im feeling so alone.  Its because Im around so many people I cant speak with.  I am jumping on the learn-Spanish-now bandwagon.  It killed me not being able to speak with the Taxi driver on my way to the hostel.

I love relaxing and enjoying the view of life. Whether the view is from the top of a BASE object, or from my balcony in Envigado, Colombia. I love life when it's up, and I'm trying harder to love life when it's down as well. My biggest loves in life are (in order!) Family, BASE, Music, Boys that play music, and Alcohol. I get along with everyone that doesn't take me too seriously, and with people that are ok with the fact that you should disregard almost anything I say when I'm drunk!
