6 de julio

a street in Popayán, Colombia

July 6, 2009. Today the trip from Cali to Popayán and back is made easily in a day’s time. According to my aunt Stella and uncle Joaquín, it hasn’t always been that way. I’m sorry that I don’t remember exactly how long it took, and google is no help with reference to the route. Whether the ride was long or short, we met the city of Popayán—where we all agreed the sweet shop wasn’t what it used to be, walked the inside of the house where my abuela was born (where the original floors are partially preserved), paid our respects to General Obando, and ended the trip with our (my and Tom’s, that is) first taste of empanadas de Pipián.

    Thanks, Brett. I’m enjoying the opportunity to log “old material” lately. We’ll see where else it takes me!
