My husband Tomas and I are here in Bogota for my school reunion with Colegio Nueva Granada.
The first day I sat at a table with my novel as I greeted arriving alumni (compañeros). Sometimes we recognize each other sometimes we don´t – or we were here in different years. I recognize classmates of my sister Carolin too, who arrives and we have lunch. Living on different sides of the USA we haven´t seen each other in three years.
We visited Zipaquira where an ancient salt mine – or part of it ( it is still an operational mine) has been turned into a cathedral.
As we get off the bus a colombiana passes around a roll of toilet paper – there are modern toilets at the mine – but no toilet paper!
Below is the entrance to the salt mine.
