Welcome to paradise!!!


By Edwige

Last Monday I was thinking: mmmmhhh I had a great weekend!!! A long, great chilling-drinking session on Friday night at David's, a great dinner and family at Enrique's place on Saturday and Sundays by the pool!!! Pretty great I can say... But what came next...mind-blowing!!!

We have planned this trip for so long, and I might say this was what kept us going :) And here it was: after a super stressed week in school and celebration of Saint Patrick's Day (me as leading role :D) on Friday...I jump on Julio's moto and rush to the main station for tickets. A bit of negotiation, a ticket sold in front of the office (just one for 5 persons), an unknown company....but nothing can take way the urge!!!

Shopping, fast luggage and shower, no sleep, a taxi in the middle of the night down to the southern station. 4 hours and a nap later we arrive in Santa Marta. Crowded market place, tiendas everywhere but still not much take away food... We hop on the first bus to Tayrona and after one hour...here we are in a dusty parking place, taking a sweet coffee "without sugar" and a "dedito con queso".

After another hour of negotiation for the entrance ticket (35.000 COP for foreigners) we are alone with in the jungle. We enjoy the walk, colored insects, flowers and lizards to get to the Caribbean Sea. I was already feeling like in a postcard, so I am still poor in epithets.

There were three days of walking through coconut forests, huge rocks, blue sea and hammocks. In fact, I don't remember exactly the dream cause I looked on the mirror when I woke up....:)

Everything was really like in a dream, just the sun burns are waking me up now and today's Adelante triunfante norteno!!! All those colored birds, huge butterflies, the blue sea, white sand, colorful hammocks and laid-back people and the loud music of jungle...hmmm...

Buna ziua,

Ma iertati ca va deranjez .Vin cu rugamintea la d-voastra sa scrieti un articol pe blogul d-voastra si sa distribuiti mai departe pe facebook despre mama mea, Gabriela Tudorache care este foarte bolnava . Este diagnosticata cu meningiom , o tumoare cerebrala care i-a afectat vederea si trebuie sa se opereze cat mai repede la o clinica din Germania unde ni se cere 35 000 EUR plus cheltuieli de cazare si transport .

Viata si vederea ei depind de aceasta operatie , iar mie si fratelui meu ne este foarte greu sa o vedem cum indura zilnic cumplitele dureri de cap si ametelile .Timpul nu ne permite sa asteptam si va rugam sa scrieti un articol despre cazul ei . Mai multe detali le gasiti pe http://gabrielatudorache.blogspot.com/. Sau ne puteti contacta la nr de tel. 0724342082. Va rugam , daca sunteti de acord sa ne lasati si un raspuns .
Va multumesc din inima pentru sprijinul acordat.
