We bumped, bumped, bumped onto the runway in Bogotá after an easy, easy-going travel day. The flight from Houston to Bogotá was 4.5 hours with in-flight movies and TV shows, a path over the Gulf of Mexico and the Caribbean Sea, and I watched the sun set to the west. My first glimpses of Colombia were dots of light and expanses of black. In contrast, Bogotá was aglow as a city of 8 million people.
We drove through relatively quiet streets to the Hilton and I wheeled my suitcase into this lovely room at nearly 10:30pm. I opted to order room service and to Skype with Brian and Sarah rather than eat in the restaurant downstairs. It is here that I've eaten my first Colombian empanada and arepa.
I left our home nearly 19 hours ago - I'm a bit tired and looking forward crawling into bed very soon.

I'm so glad you're there! I can't wait to hear all about the food.

So glad you all made it safely there! The empanada looks great! I will eat one in Times Square today in your honor! Enjoy!
