For the past couple of weeks, Seth and I have had a bad case of the summertime blues. Our friends and family in Texas are filling their days with barbecues, pool parties, and ultimate frisbee, while we sit at bakeries, sipping cappuccinos to keep warm. Since we have no way of controlling the chilly Bogotá weather, we decided to embrace a different trademark of the tropics: fruit! On Friday morning before work, we chopped up some papaya, baked a plantain with a chunk of melted mozzarella, and blended some fresh passionfruit juice. I don’t know about Seth, but after a breakfast like that, I was singing a happy tune all day long.
Sometimes, you just have to make the best of what you’ve got!
