Just a quick note to say we all arrived safely and on time in Manizales, Colombia. A few bags didn’t make the final connection from Bogota, but that was the only glitch. This was a long day that began well before our 2:30 a.m. meeting time and didn’t end until all 16 of us had hit four airports (abbreviations listed above) and covered thousands of miles.
Please forgive the brevity of this post. I wrote most of this last night when my mind was no longer fresh, and then forgot to actually publish it until this morning. I’ll offer more when we’ve had some actual experiences on which to opine.
