Bogota is a high altitude city with a 500+ year history involving Spain and Europe. Of interest is the fact that the Colombian government is the most friendly to the USA of all South American countries. We saw evidence of progress in many facets of the country. The flag represent their history and culture: yellow for the gold mined, blue for the two oceans (Pacific and Atlantic) that flank the country, and red, for the blood of the Martyrs fighting for Independence. We were so blessed to be a part of the Dubberly\'s life and church while in Bogota. May God continue to bless their ministry as they serve Him!

What a breathtakingly beautiful area Patagonia is! It is a land of contrasts: with flat arid plains around Puerto Madryn and Peninsula Valdez and its penguin colonies and Estancias, to the awesome glaciers and otherworldly rock formations of El Calafate near the central western border of Argentina. At its southernmost tip are the enormous craggy mountain ranges and tranquil shores, and wooded islands found along the Beagle Channel. Amazing vistas met us at every turn on our trek through this never-to-be-forgotten region of God\'s world!

It began as a whim or perhaps more a dream as 3 long time colleagues acknowledged the effects of aging on their bodies but not on their spirits or sense of adventure. WE MUST do an adventure while we are all able and willing, they declared. So despite anxiety regarding care for their three aging mothers during this adventure, the dreaming and research began...... First, the date. Between work and family obligations, professional conferences, classes, and the holidays, we finally agreed upon a vacation schedule--well, almost. Janet was able to leave earlier so the first few days of this adventure are her solo travel experience. So, next, the destination. Where is the weather good for outdoor adventure in December? None of us had been to Argentina and Pagatonia beckoned to us. Carol Jo had previously traveled with Adventure Life. The pieces were falling into place! Monika at Adventure Life arranged a wonderful trip, taking into consideration my solo travel on the Custom Buenos Aires and the Falls Tour, and meeting up with Kathy and Carol Jo on the Awesome Argentina 8-Day Tour. Finally, the travel day arrived! This is our most excellent adventure.

Taste of Argentina Tour + El Calafate - During the week we spent together Guadalupe was the quintessential tour guide, showing me the lovely towns of Salta, Cachi and Cafayate. She was a wealth of information, well-read, and tons of fun. Amazingly, it had turned out to be a private tour because no one else had signed up and to top it off, our personable and charming driver, Kiko, turned out to be a real gem.

It is February school vacation week, and most of our friends have been indulging in pedicures and manicures for trips to the Caribbean and Florida. Though we are not glamorous, we are happy, happy, happy because we are going to tour Patagonia today.
