Cartagena and Christine┬┤s bday

Well, we have quite a few pictures here. I guess we're making up for lost time. There are some more from our time in Colombia. As you can see, we took a lot of pictures while there. I think we just have one more round to go. This first picture was taken in the historic center of the city to show some of the different colors of the buildings there. These buildings were so beautiful, especially along with the bouganvillea and other flowers.
The next one was taken at a supermarket there where I picked up some Colombian coffee. The guy at the checkout has on a hat that is very popular in Colombia. We'd see these hats everywhere and I guess Colombia is known for them.
Here's a picture of a sunset we saw there from the balcony of our hotel room.
The next couple of pictures are from the 'Juan Valdez' coffee shop and store, what turned out to be a highlight of the trip. I had a cup of Colombian's finest and bought some as well to take home. I have to say it is some of the best coffee I've had in my life. I wish this blog had a way you could sample the coffee or at least smell it. The second picture, while not real flattering, was supposed to be an action shot of me drinking Juan Valdez coffee.
The rest of the pictures were taken back here in the valley. This first one is of Christine with some of our beautiful roses which are all in bloom these days.
The rest of these pictures were taken of the the volunteer team from Oklahoma that came a couple of weeks ago. We had a great time with them and they did some great work. It was good to know them and we were encouraged by working with them. They spent most of their time out in Tingo at the La Fuente project out there.
The first one is of leading music with the kids which turned out to be a favorite of the kids. The guy playing the guitar in the picture is Perry, another missionary and co-worker. Here's Christine with a little friend we met that day.
It was Christine's birthday on May 21 and we celebrated in grand fashion as the next couple of pictures indicate.
This was something that the kids made for Christine.
The last one here was taken the night of her bday when we went out on a hot date at a nice restaraunt.
Guess this is all for now, will have to show more pictures from the volunteer's time here and one more round of Colombia pictures. Take care and God bless.
