High Pressure Hoses Of Colombia- Time To Be Curious
This is it. The perfect example of the sort of discoveries you find as you travel the world. Some of them are soul-lifting, heart-warming, life-changing, others are just ‘well, I never knew that’ serendipitously pleasant.
And, here, as we drive through Colombia, a country we loved so very much, a country which filled our hearts with so many beautiful moments, we stopped the car. Why? Why do they have this here? Why do they do this? What does this mean and why are there so many of them?
And, here’s one, not particularly breath-taking, not particularly memorable every day on-the-road discovery. And it has to do with water, so we love it. But you know what? It is exciting, and memorable, and amazing. You know why? Because we didn’t just pass it, we didn’t hurry off to the next thing. We didn’t miss all the lovely curiosities unfolding around us in the rush to the next thing on our ‘to do’ list.
We looked, we talked about it, we reflected, we pondered. We stopped to ask. We found answers and then wanted to experiment with it ourselves. And so, with our children, we became really curious six year old’s out to discover the world. We splashed in the water (our car did!) and delighted in just being there, right then and now, in that moment, discovering high pressure hoses off the side of the road used to wash the trucks clean in their off-road exertions.
Remember the last time, you just chilled out and discovered something? Ever traveled far, or near your home, with your child or grandchild and just discovered and explored all the things that just came to you? I remember once paying buckos of money for my kids to get into this multi-media puppet show with half a dozen stages doing performances. I convinced myself it was worth it to spend the money on ‘culture’, they spent the entire time outside chasing pigeons. Ever discovered curiosity? Tell me about it. Gabi

We cry, fight, and share when we seriously regret this lifestyle choice. We’re so normal it’s embarrassing.2 insane parents+ 3 very patient kids= 1 adventure of a lifetime. (Oh, and I like to curse.
