We returned to Bogota for Robin’s surgeon to do two (one wasn’t enough?) oral surgeries to complete the process that was begun back in October with her big surgery. We spent eight nights in a top floor terrace suite of a hotel. The terrace was huge and overlooked the park, but it had no furniture so we didn’t get much use out of it. We spent most of our time lounging (recovering) and watching movies. There were three movies in the city in English so we saw them all. We took long walks enjoying the cool weather that was such a change from the Bocas heat and humidity. The one site we did get out and enjoy was the Botanical Gardens. They were beautiful and the plants were so different from North and Central American plants. We even renewed our marriage vows in the prettiest part of the gardens we could find. We figured that we got married (36 years ago) on the North American continent so we should do the same in South America. It was beautiful and quite romantic. The park was almost empty and it seemed we had the place to ourselves.
