Today, to take our minds off the fact that we only have one day left before we bid Joe and Isabel farewell, we decided to head to the science museum. It was one rainy afternoon in Bogotá and the kids were super excited to visit Maloka.
We came back to our little Bogotá abode and there was a beautiful cake waiting for us. We celebrated our last night in Bogotá with our friends at Zuetana. If you’re looking for a place to stay in Bogotá, Claudia who owns this guest house, is amazing.
I am processing so many emotions about leaving that I don’t even know how to put pen to paper, or in this case, fingers to keyboard, to get them out. I am leaving my daughter behind. My fragile, malnourished, daughter. There just aren’t words. The bottom line is, I wish it didn’t have to be this way. I wish we could all just stay in Colombia and be with her until it is time to come home.
Alas, school is calling, literally, for the other kids. So, tomorrow at 4am, we’ll rise to make the long trek home.
