Hi Friends & Family!
Well it has been a long day...but we've arrived safe and sound in Bogota! After departing Minneapolis a bit late at lunchtime, we had a strong tailwind (and boy did we feel it at times!) and we landed in Atlanta just a few minutes later than our original time anyway. That was good news because we got to our next gate with only about 10 minutes to spare before they started boarding!
The flight from Atlanta to Bogota was fairly uneventful...minus a few moments of heavy turbulence! We saw the movie Transformers and it was pretty entertaining to switch back and forth between the English version and Spanish version...hearing Transformers talk in Spanish is kinda funny! :)
We landed and breezed through customs with no problems. A porter met us on the other side and helped us get our luggage off the baggage carousel (which all got there - PTL!) and through the gates to the pick up area. We saw Mario and his son Mario holding the Dressel sign and we were off! Somehow we fit 8 pieces of luggage and a stroller plus the two of us and the two Mario's into a car the size of a Ford Escort! Good work Mario's! :)
We got to Betty's Place - the bed & breakfast where we were staying fine too - and our room is cute. I took pics, but after facing a headache with our Skype system now working, I'm too tired to download them and update the page with them tonight...but I'll get them up here soon...maybe tomorrow!
Robert has already retired to bed...and I'm falling asleep as I type this...so goodnight all! Thanks for your prayers for traveling mercies!
