Food is something that brings the world together. Each culture has its own traditions and favorite foods. As a self proclaimed foodie, I was so excited to try cuisines in the countries they originated in. During my travels, I have discovered and will undoubtedly continue to discover culinary treasures around the globe. I am honored to share with you, My Elephant Tribe, the amazing meals I have enjoyed throughout the world.
Day 54: Colombia
Have you ever taken a 2 hour Uber ride? Well I have. To go to a Salt Cathedral. Yes, a Salt Cathedral in an old salt mine. It was one of the most stunning and amazing things I have even seen in my life. The stations off the cross were carved out of salt rock. There are certain criteria that a church must meet in order to be considered a cathedral. This is the only salt mine cathedral in the world. The architecture and artistry that went into its creation was truly remarkable. After our tour we were starving, so we called an Uber to take us to Andres Carne de Res which Robinson highly recommended.
The atmosphere was so much fun. Too bad as soon as the food came I was nauseous and couldn't eat anything. My health has been a roller coaster the last few months. I thought it was from the stress I was under previously. I thought that when I was traveling and living my dream it would get better, but it has remained the same. I don't really understand. I am trying so hard to master self care, but I am struggling. When I think I’ve finally figured it out, I am sick again. Maybe my problem is that there's nothing to figure out. I am not perfect. I don't have all the answers, but I am willing to find them.
The worst part this time was that Brian said this was the best restaurant we've eaten at so far. As soon as our bill was paid I ran out off the restaurant to the cool night air. We called an Uber to take us 40 minutes back to our apartment and my bed because that was the only thing I wanted at that point. I hope I feel better tomorrow.
