I polled Facebook friends for ideas for this blog. After some pretty awesome suggestions, I decided on Passports and Preguntas.
What is a passport, you may ask? Do you have one, you may ask?
A passport is a legal(?) document that allows travel between one country and another. And yes, I do have a passport! I’ve had a passport for eight years. In that span, I’ve been to….five countries. Two of them I’ve been to twice! And that isn’t counting Puerto Rico, which is *sort of* like going to another country. I love traveling. I studied abroad in Poland twice, took a long weekend trip to Czech Republic on the first visit to Poland, taught English in China, took a group of adoptive families on a homeland journey to Guatemala, and visited my own birthcountry, Colombia, twice.
(Come to think of it, I have two passports. A U.S. passport mentioned above, and a Colombian passport issued to me as a two month old baby. I have opinions about passports….more on that later.)
Now that we’ve got passports straight, let’s discuss what a preguntas is. What is a preguntas?
Okay so it’s actually just preguntas. No a. And it’s in Spanish. One pregunta, many preguntas. And I have a lot of preguntas. What is a pregunta? It’s a question. I shall be asking a lot of questions. I’m a very curious person. I used the Spanish word for question because I’m half in Spanish. Sort of. I’m Colombian. Adopted from Colombia. A huge part of my identity and now, a huge part of my life, is in Colombia and in the Spanish language. More on that later too.
Please, post any questions you may have at this time. I hope this will be an interactive conversation kind of blog.
