Eric hits Medellin....................
Trip Start Jul 05, 2005
47Trip End ??? ??, 2006
Then, Eric arrived on Saturday(a day early). We went to dinner Friday night at "oh my god park" and Eric had a smile on his face the entire night. And, it wasn't because he was glad to see me, it was the sights he saw as we ate dinner outside. Then we hit a club where I introduced Eric to aguardiente (aka fire water). We had a great time and then headed back to the hotel for some zzzzzzzzzzz
Apparently, while I was gone, Jose's brother who was visiting Colombia showed up and stayed a few days. During that time, the boys partied really hard, so when I got back to Medellin on Friday, they were pretty tired. We went to dinner on Friday night and then went to a place called El Solar (the back yard) that was owned by some cousins I had never met before. El Solar was a pretty cool place. It was a nightclub with live music played by my two cousins, Gabriel (guitar) and Humberto (drums). Once I told them who i was, they hugged me and told me how happy they were to have me there. It was pretty cool. We had a really great time and didn't make it back to the hotel till after 3 am. The next day was brutal.
Saturday night after working all day, we decided to see the Christmas lights and take it easy. We saw the lights and Eric left us for some chic he had met while I was in Bogota and he was tearing up Medellin with Jose and Roel
Overall, we had a great week and laughed a whole bunch. It was a nice way to end my halfway mark here in Colombia. I can't believe I've been here 6 months. The time has flown by!
