The Journey

So, we've made it to Santa Marta, Colombia safe and sound. The Journey was not without its exciting moments: between Manoj leaving his wallet behind, delays at the George Washington Bridge, making it to the gate just before the doors were being closed, 2 medical emergencies on the plane (although one ended up just being a female passenger experiencing menstrual cramps), careful scrutiny of our belongings at customs in Bogota (after realizing our purpose for bringing a curious variety of items such as tongue blade depressors, clorox wipes, and anesthesia equipment, the airport personnel were very thankful that we came to help their people), 6 very loooonnnnggg hours there waiting for our connecting flight, and a military escort to our military barracks (well equipped with highly visible rifles), it was certainly a memorable trip here.
