Next week, it's back to the old routine -- waking extra early to walk the dog, getting the kids to school, music lessons, homework....sigh. I shouldn't complain, though. We live a pretty privileged life compared to the kids in one Colombian village. They live in an area so remote that the children have to travel to school on a zip line over a deep chasm. It's a harrowing routine, but even the young children are accustomed to it.
That is only one remote jungle village, however. Much of Colombia is breathtakingly gorgeous and full of history, festivities, and culture. Thanks, Edrian, for the following video:
