CARNAVAL DE BARRANQUILLA 2005

Reading time: 3 – 4 minutes

Hmmm… I thought I would be romantic and explore Carlos’ homeland of BARRANQUILLA, Colombia. He only lived there until he was 5 years old, and this is his first time returning since that time. It JUST SO HAPPENS that his trip coincides with CARNAVAL DE BARRANQUILLA 2005, a many-days-long festival of dancing, music, and (I am sure) some debauchery… I wonder if he knew this was going on. And if so… I wonder why he didn’t tell me.

Well, at least I know he will be having fun. He LOVES music and dancing!! YAY!

Also, in the process of reading up on Barranquilla, I found all kinds of scary warnings about the dangers, attacks, thefts, abductions, and murders that happen there daily! Great.

I just know I am going to drive myself crazy.

And then… Carlos takes off to ROME next month!!

Yeeeeesh…
