In May my web hosting service will expire. I am saving all I can to pay for another year, but might need a little help. If anyone would like to help me pay for the web hosting fee I would be greatly appreciative. There is a link to my paypal account on this page. The cost is about $110 (US) per year, that is about 220,000 COL pesos, and has to be paid for 1 year minimum.

Hi Everyone! I hope all are doing well. I am.

Here the Carnaval just finished this past Tuesday. The main weekend was last weekend, with parades and concerts all over the city. The main parades, in downtown, were on Saturday, Sunday and Monday, with more smaller parades on Tuesday. I didn't see much of them, the crowds are unbelievably huge, and unless you get to the parade route at least a couple hours early you will be stuck at the back of the crowd unable to see anything more than heads walking down the road.

Another dancer in the Barranquilla Carnaval.

I hope you are doing well. I am doing fine, my job is going fine.

This past weekend my friend Vivi and I went to the Guacherna parade for Carnaval and it did not turn out to be a very good evening. First we arrived too late to get anywhere near the parade so we couldn't see any of the parade, and we walked to every access location along the route. The crowds were so huge there was no way to squeeze in anywhere near the parade.
