This is a video from my 31st birthday:

 

Thanks to Veronica, Jennifer, Moranni, Tatiana, Linde and Renske I had a super-surprise b-day dance performed at Club Roses in Amsterdam.

I paid more than 200 EUR for pizza and drinks with my friends.

And those are the pictures from my 32nd birthday, celebrated in Barra, a 3rd World village on the Pacific coast of Colombia:

the group

I was there with few, new, friends and some unknown people from CouchSurfing.
I had no wish of celebrating in any other way that just enjoying another day of my walkabout… and anyway there are no cakes in La Barra 🙂

I paid instead a bottle of vice, an horrible local home-made liquor that cost me 12000 COP (about 6 USD, 5 EUR).

do you see the huge fin?

 

 

It felt very different but also very special. I wished “happy birthday” to myself and enjoyed the day, spent mainly doing whale-watching in the Pacific Ocean: we was some big big fins in the water there!!

 

 

Two very different kind of celebrations, I love the contrast!
