Danger! Look Closely. You Might Miss It.


https://dailypost.wordpress.com/photo-challenges/danger/

What are the dangerous things I encounter living in Colombia? What to do if a cow escapes the fence? Or a goat approaches me while I hike? What should I do when the water is so high in the rivers? Or the rain causes a mudslide? Maybe I should really be scared when the ground shakes at 5AM! That is the most danger I encounter in Colombia. I love my simple life. I love it so much I am willing to risk the only real danger I have ever experienced while living in Colombia, tremors from Earthquakes deep inside the Earth. To be honest, I don’t know an Earthquake has happened until it is over. I guess if it was really bad, I would be crushed because it takes me, this woman from Florida awhile to comprehend. By the time I do if it was bad, I would be dead. I would die happy in my paradise.

I am an American who moved to Colombia to find peace after the devastating loss of my daughter. I bought and renovated a Villa, am learning Spanish, and writing as catharsis. This blog will be like my book with chapters. Each blog will be about my life and adventures. I hope you will enjoy the many new discoveries I am making every day about myself and another culture.

  1. I always want to visit Colombia. My best friend lives there and I still haven’t found time yet to visit him. I heard it’s a lovely and beautiful country.
    About the quake, it could happen anywhere too. Stay safe..

    cheers,

    1. I have had a few. Once when doing dishes and watching my wine bottles go to the end of the shelf and thinking NOOOOOOOO! But they stopped just in time. Nothing major, just ground movement. However, it is like hurricanes, tornadoes and more…shit happens. Oh and please come visit you will want to stay. xo, M
