Gracias por todo Colombia!

As we’re getting closer to the end of the year, it was mandatory to make a special post about 2012 and all the things this year has brought to me.

So yeah, what a year it was… full of surprises. At the beginning of 2012, I moved to Colombia and start all over again in Bogotá, an incredible city I deeply fell in love with on the 26th of February. Precisely! (funny the small details your mind remembers!). I left family and friends, I had no money, no job and didn’t know a soul there. Some people would never understand why on Earth someone could make such a decision. I just give it a shot. This country has so much to offer, you can’t even imagine, and I’m not talking about arepas, arequipe or the mind-blowing choice of exotic fruits… well… not only!

Colombia has brought to me great friendships and self-confidence and allowed me to embrace a brand new culture that I made mine in no time. I’ve travelled the country, been into the craziest places, lost myself a couple times, haggled on the markets and loved it, learned how to dance salsa and to trust myself a little bit more.

Ironically, I’m writing all this from Paris, because as you probably know (for those who have read my previous posts… what, you haven’t already??!), I wasn’t able to stay in Colombia for many reasons. But it’s still here. I know I will go back eventually, there is so much left to explore. Let’s see if my crystal ball is still working!

To end this post, I couldn’t find a better video to say muchas gracias Colombia, de todo mi corazon and thanks to all of you, family, friends and readers and to my producers, without whom I wouldn’t have made it… sorry, just got a bit carried away 🙂 Que disfruten de la musica de Colombia !
