Today is My Bday, but I still have more colombian stories

Well let me start with a few thing that happened around the beginning of mytrip. I obviously was there without my luggage but I was so happy to be there with my whole family. My uncle and his wife and 2 step kids were there. My aunt and 5 cousins. My mother, brother and sister was there. And of course Cici, grandma and grandpa. Its just been so long since we all have been together. I can't get into great detail about the whole trip because then it would be like the epic poem The odyssey. But I can give you bits and pieces. I am going to try to upload some videos and more pictures. Every night was a night to drink and I never got any sleep, maybe 3 to 4 hours max. We went out and partied a lot as a family. We went to small villages where my grandma owns property. We rode horses. I have never rode a horse before ( I bet many of you are smiling saying yea right like you never rode a "Horse") lol but yea this would be my first time with out someone pulling on the cords and walking me around a park. It felt good being able to control such a strong and mighty animal and I had it running around the mountains. Funny story was that my cousin John took my brothers horse whipped the horses ass and my brother went zooming. And of course our horse went running just as fast behind him. I could have sworn that I was going to fall off. We finally started to slow down and the horses was going down a steep slope and I was behind my cousin Gustavo when out of the blue the horse falls face first flipping Gustavo off the horse and throwing him to the floor and the horse kind of rolled over him. Gustavo got up and ran to the corner and didn't have any major injuries just a couple of bruises. It was so funny how he ran and how the horse fell, but luckily everything was alright. The horse broke the saddle so my othercousin had to take his horse since he knew how to handle the animal. Then later that day we ate and just hanged out as a family, talking playing uno and other card games. Later in the night my cousin‘s, brotherand sister decided to go into the cemetery in the middle of the night. And I don't know if you know this but we are in a small village with a population of maybe 100 people and its purely mountains and hills and wild animals. I didn't go with them because I was with my aunt. She later suggested that we go and scare them. I enlisted my cousin Christian and John to join me in this plot to terrify them. Christian came with a white blanket and me and john climbed up to the cemetery quietly and we could here my brother sister and my other cousin’s under us cause we were on a hill. I started making a weird wind noise and then my cousin Christian jumped up and started screaming. Everyone that was down there ran as fast as there legs could carry them and my cousin Sebastian fell face first and he didn't even bother to get back up since he was so terrified and everyone had left him. Everyman on his own I guess. We laughed and laughed about it and it was just way to much fun. We want back to my grandma house and I told everyone and its was just an amazing story. My brother and older male cousin left all the girls to defend themselves and ran without them. those are my hero’s right? Wow I have written a lot. And I realized that I have so many more story to tell. So catch my blog next time and again ill post more pictures. Oh we also went to a sugar cane farm and saw how the made aqua panela. That’s all for now I guess
Be good
