Colombian babybump dancing

As a Colombian woman I love dancing anywhere and everywhere even more when I am very happy. The due day of my baby was the 29 of April, today is 1st of May and he/she is still in my belly so I decided to make a video with a song we have been dancing to in the shower for more than nine months to ‘show’ how happy and excited I am.

The song is called “Que bonito”, this is a song with ‘champeta’ rhythms from the Colombian group Bomba Estereo. There is no doubt that my baby is going to have the Colombian rhythm in his/her blood.

 

A conversation with a lovely old lady

The other day after having a hard day at Uni “I thought I am going to get on the bus, and sleep all the way home” but my plans quickly came unstuck, I found myself sat next to a lovely old lady, who wanted to chat, so not a chance of closing my eyes.

The moment I sat down she asked my opinion of the hand bag that she had bought for her next door neighbour, I told her that it was nice, even when honestly was a bit out of date for a young woman. From that moment the conversation became very one sided, in her favour. I have to say she never made feel bored, quite the opposite in fact, it was very pleasant to hear her stories about her neighbourhood. I can even say that I feel like I know her neighbours personally.abuelita mejor.jpg

After we parted and as she was jumping off the bus I started to feel a little sad, because I released that elderly people sometimes just need someone to talk to, somebody who will listen and pay attention to what they want to share with you, about their pets, neighbours, shoes, it could be about anything.

I think that by taking a few minutes out of our day and having a chat with someone is a way that we can help them not feel too lonely, in this fast pace world where technology hogs our attention. Something that is not that relevant to us could be important to them. We should remember that one day we also are going to be elderly too. Think about treating them as you would like to be treated in your adulthood.​

love is a thing with feathers

Love arrives when you least expect it. Sometimes life introduces you to a person with whom you have things in common, things that make the couple happy. Few months ago I found a picture of me when I was a little girl, I was wearing a handmade Native American outfit and immediately it reminded me that my husband had a similar picture too.

He has always been fond of Native Americans, so much that he has a tattoo on his arm. The first time I seen it I fell even more in love with him. Now that I am pregnant I have this idea of having a photo shoot with a Native American headdress to get our unborn baby involved.

I move around a lot – my nomadic path

I was born in Colombia but I can’t really say that I have a home town because since I was five years old my family started our nomadic life. I moved more than 16 times while time I lived in my home land. When I met the man became my husband I thought my nomadic life was going to stop but no, how wrong I was, so far we have lived in four different countries and the moved ten times and I can’t see it stopping any time soon.

I love cats and dogs but because we don’t stay in one place very long we have preferred not to get any pets. Instead I always ended looking after my friends pets. Once I looked after a well-educated cat for a moth, his name was Chigrinsky, he used to do number two’s in the shower between 7 to 8 am and at food time he loved to be pampered on his back meanwhile he was having his dinner. Chigars I miss you!

At the moment, I am living in England again, where I am doing my degree in Public Relations. The first time I came to England it was love at first sight, so when I moved to England it was easy for me to be adapt even when I didn’t speak the language. The only thing I didn’t get was why the locals were constantly complaining about the weather, but after living in the south France and on the Mediterranean coast of Spain, I finally understood why English people complain about the weather.

A nomadic life has its pros and cons but, for me it is a very exiting life since it brings the opportunity of meeting new people, making new friends and knowing different cultures. I’m expecting a little nomadic baby soon, his/her Dad is from England and Mam from Colombia and he/she was made in Spain so long live to the nomadic life!
