  • Medellín 2008: The trip

    View Larger Map It all started on July 30th at 3:30am when I get this phone call: Me: “He…mfff…llo…bmgrrr?” Cab driver: “Hello are you Mr. Jaramillo? I´m the cab driver and I´m waiting for you outside your house” Me: “Dude! I asked for a cab for July 31st! You came 24 hours too soon!” Cab […]

  • Trip to New Orleans

    Are you a really good brother or are you that stupid? I must say that you have to be both, to drive from Austin to New Orleans by yourself to only stay four days (2 of which I spent driving). My sister went to New Orleans because The Acoustical Society of America was meeting at […]

  • Monterrey 2007

    I spent most of last week in Monterrey, Nuevo León, México. The purpose of the trip was mainly to see the concert Me verás volver of Soda Stereo, one of my favorite bands ever. The concert was AMAZING! Check Marcos‘ blog for the chronicle and take a look at the official concert photos here and […]

  • Puerto Escondido

    I can only describe this amazing trip to Puerto Escondido to Eva and Niv’s wedding in spanish. Cómo describir lo vivido en Puerto Escondido, Oaxaca, México en el Agosto de 2007, cuando los adjetivos se quedan cortos? Una mezcla explosiva de Evas y Nives, de Mafaldas y Susanitas, Tequilas, Mazeltovs, y olas gigantes. De Dejarse […]

  • August update

    Blogs turn very lame when you dont post regularly. Recently I haven’t had anything exciting to write about, so my blog has been falling into the lame category. This post is just to summarize some of the things I have been doing recently or that I’m going to be doing in the near future. Party, […]

  • Start spreading the news

    For the 4th of July weekend me and four friends (Alejandro, Andres, Luis and Raffaele) decided to go to New York city. We bought tickets with American and flu on wednesday with one stop at Raleigh (NC). We stayed at the Howard Johnson located in SoHo (Manhattan) and it was a good choice: cheap hotel […]

  • Volver

    Volver, con la frente marchita, las nieves del tiempo platearon mi sien. Sentir, que es un soplo la vida, que veinte años no es nada, que febril la mirada… Ok, lets not be drama queens: coming back to Medellín after less than one an a half years is not as dramatic as Carlos Gardel´s tango […]

  • Christmas in Albany

    My trip to Albany was very fun. It was nice to see my sister and to meet all her friends. We spent the 24th at Fernando’s house eating Ajiaco, drinking Aguardiente and dancing vallenatos, salsas and porros which made the night very colombian-style. I forgot to bring my camera but my sister took some pictures.

  • Non-Stop Traveling

    As if going to Spain for two weeks wasn’t enough, my sister worked hard to convince me to visit her in Albany for the christmas weekend. I started by looking for tickets Austin-Albany and they were about $500 and I was not willing to pay that much. But then I looked for tickets between Austin […]

  • Adventures in Spain

    I started posting a few comments from Spain during my trip, but then it became more difficult to find internet access. Now I’m back in Austin after a very loooong flight back home and I’m very pleased to say that my trip was fantastic. I think Spain is a beautiful country with very nice people, […]
