Denver, Colorado

Union Station, Denver, Colorado

It’s so sweet being back in civilization. I’m staying at an Airbnb in The Coloradan, the newest condo building in the heart of Union Station, Denver. I finally have easy access to numerous coffee shops, grocery stores, pharmacies, restaurants, parks, walking paths and many transportation options.

I had hoped I’d find something like this somewhere – anywhere in Latin America. I visited many capital cities filled with millions of people, but nothing – absolutely nothing was even half as good as what I have here in Denver. I feel like a heavy weight has been lifted off me. I’m going to really enjoy soaking this all in. I have so many restaurants to visit here.

I’ve been looking forward to this for some time. I need to replace my backpack (I gave the old one to a construction worker who was thrilled to have a Tumi), my hoodie (gave it to a homeless guy), my laptop (it’s on order – with an Arabic keyboard), my iPhone (done), my reading glasses and my prescription sunglasses. In two days I have a medical checkup AND I’ve been working out every day in my building’s gym which is brilliant! I can finally work out, eat and diet properly.

All new equipment in a gym that seems to rarely be used. Love it!

So nice!!! Denver’s so sweet – except when it’s below zero. I’m already planning for that. I have this condo until 1 October. After that I think I may go to Florida, or maybe Mexico City. I’m not sure.

One thing that is for sure is that when I do hit the road again, I’ll be much better prepared with all new travel gear.

Life is good.
