So we were scared we’d be all alone in Santa Marta for Christmas with no plans, no friends or family and basically no fun. So naturally we took on way too many tasks, got sick and drank too much alcohol. But it’s not really Christmas until someone cries is it? I’m still not sure how we managed to make Christmas in the Caribbean stressful..It’s actually quite the acomplishment. We had a Christmas party at our house on the 22nd, brought all the kids over for a Christmas present party on the 23rd, prepared food for 7hour and went to Fundadores for dinner on the 24th. I guess we would have been fine if we had gone home after that, but instead we went back to Brisa to dance on the bar until the wee hours. On Christmas Day we were back at Brisa by 7.30 a.m. and arranged a dinner for about 70 people. I also think we would have been better off if fewer of the volunteers had had tonsillitis and if Rachel haden gotten Dengue fever. Oh well – some things you can’t control and in between the stress we had a very merry christmas here in Colombia!!
Christmas is finally over
