I had to write about something I witnessed today. While walking through the city of Bogota I kept encountering elderly women (maybe late 70’s or early 80’s) doing some amazing stuff. While in the national park I was in awe of an elderly women jumping rope with some young kids. When she finished she didn’t need to sit down. She strolled away as though she hadn’t even exerted herself.
Later in the day I passed an elderly woman playing soccer with, what could have been, either her grand children or great grand children. She sprinted up and down a street with a steeper slope than any I’ve seen in San Francisco and gave the boys a run for their money while laughing at them.
I’m going to start drinking Colombia’s water today!
