So my first two weeks or so in Barranquilla weren’t the best. I was in a grumpy mood because of my accommodation, the weather was tough to deal with and I was extremely homesick. On top of this, I was left more or less to my own devices with no friends so I was extremely bored a lot, and had no idea about how to get around the city – or what there was to do.
Nonetheless things have got better. I don’t feel as bad about my room now, but I’m still looking to move. I’ve hung out with a few Colombians, done a few touristy things and I’m starting to get used to work in the school. Things are looking up.
