Before I left Colombia I said a fond farewell with a final meal of fish with patacones and hogao. I cannot express to people how amazing the fish is there. A wonderful fresh fish deep fried? Oh!!!! SO good. What is funny is if you ask anyone they will tell you that I hate hate hate fish. I always have. But since moving to NC and then to Colombia I discovered that freshly caught fish, and deliciously prepared fish can be amazing.
I decided to post this post finally because I really miss Colombia right now. As in I pine for Colombia.
In the airport I ate the very last of my Granadillas. I miss these fruit dearly.
The good news is that even though I miss Colombia, the people I missed back here in the U.S.A. missed me too!!!!!
My lab is the cutest, and they decorated my desk to let me know how much they had missed me.
I tried to get back to science quickly (even though I had prelims, and I am proud to announce that I passed them!), but I had to include something from my home in another country (note the Uniandes shirt, love that place).
And I finally did what I had been saying over and over in Colombia I would do when I got back. I dyed my hair!!!
It actually wasn't that noticable. As in, 2 months after I did it my boss said....."is your hair blue?" It took that long to fade enough that people realized.
Actually now it is more noticable (redid it) and purple!
I think I will do crazy colors forever! I love it.
