Today I feel on top of the world. Well yes, I am 2,500 meters high, but I’ve found my feet and finally opened my eyes. Why do you ask? Well, for the first time, I’ve been OUT OF THE HOUSE and done something social. Yes, that’s what I said. I left the house. With someone other than my aunt. WOW. Big steps. Oooops, hope for your sake that spill doesn’t stain…
Where did I go you ask? I went to a yoga class. Yes, I did something for myself that I love to do, and it was exactly what the doctor ordered. It is a lovely little yoga studio on Calle 85 with Carrera 19, and the class was run by my cousin. Yes. I have a lot of cousins.
If you’re in the area, I certainly recommend trying yoga here. They do lots, including yoga things for babies and those with babies tucked up inside bumps. OK, this is not a plug, but a personal this has been the best thing I’ve done so far. Not only was the exercise brilliant, it also introduced me to the second-to-none Colombian warmth. I was immediately invited out for drinks, dinner, to meet single friends of my cousin, oh yeah, and “I have a friend, she’s lovely and she speaks English….we’ll have to go out”.
I was even asked to be “la reina del maiz” (Queen of the Corn) in a music video. Hell yeah. Bring it on. I’ll even make my own corn crown if I have to.
This is more like it. Yes, this is why I’ve upped sticks and left the UK.
I’ll let you know how it goes as the Queen of Corn. You can be my mini sweetcorn subjects.
