100 Years of Solitude

After three years I finally finished 100 years of Solitude by Gabriel Garcia Marquez. It was one of those books that I picked up and put down many times. I have enjoyed several other books by Marquez, but I guess I kept getting confused by sooo many Buendias! It turns out that I just had to spend time in Colombia to finally understand it. Then a couple of weeks ago I booked my next trip to Bogota and picked it up again. Inspired, the final 200 pages flew by in blur! Now I feel a little sad that it is over. Truly great literature!

Does Free Will Exist?

Or is it just a trick of the mind? Thus the philosopher once said, it is not a question of Free will, but instead of free Will.

Ex Pat To Be?

Nothing is final and I am working on a timeline, but I felt I might as well get a new section of this blog going. Hell perhaps a whole new site to follow:

For now it is: Ex Pat To Be? But I do need to work on a name…An “American in Colombia” is a bit dull. “Americano” is too generic, as is “The Gringo”. Hmmm something that combines those with a character specifically Colombian….

Location: Bogota, Colombia

Date: Fall 2016???
