Pink Flor in Geneva Switzerland - 13th May 2016

After the grueling 15 hour flight from Medellin to Geneva,
Pink Flor decided to use the train to get around
He absolutely loved the carousel in the Botanical Gardens.
In fact he liked it so much he asked for additional photographs
A warm sunny day at the lake was just perfect to recover from his jet-lag
Back to the Botanical Gardens to explore the remainder of the park.
Snow on the mountains! How cool
And right there in the background is Mont Blanc
You can not visit Geneva without seeing the Jet. Pink Flor got so excited. 
Pink Flor decided to play hide and seek. Can you see him?
Ever the socialite, Pink Flor makes a new friend
At last a Pink Flor sized house with a view of the lake
Pink Flor was thirsty, but found it very hard to drink from the fountain without taking a shower at the same time
Two new friends in one day. They promised to keep in touch using social media
Geneva can be very tiring, so Pink Flor asked for a ride home.

Pink Flor in Manizales Colombia - 21st March 2016

Pink Flor's taste in Rum has changed, now only 15 year aged Rum is acceptable.
He likes the new transport service in Manizales, Warm, Soft, and Friendly
Flor wanted a ride on Willys jeep. We had to explain that we were planning do this another day.
What about this jeep? he asked
Flor decided that if he could not ride a jeep, then he would travel with some pigs that he befriended earlier
He took a quick stop for some Colombian Coffee
A last! Flor got his wish to ride in a jeep.
He loved the fact that a silver horse also took the ride.
After a long day, Flor decided to take to nature. He loved riding the cable car above the forest
Staying with the nature theme, he took a short rest by a Lilly pond
He took a long walk on this wooden bridge over a small pond
Flor wanted some more coffee, but the store was closed
He then exhausted himself by climbing this palm tree
Flor walked several kilometres into the forest, and decided to take a rest by this fresh spring water
Looks like Flor likes climbing. Here he climbed a tree to get a better view of a wild orchid
Flor decided to study a local kiosk built for weddings and meetings. He loved the design
A final stop by a furnace. He was disappointed there was no BBQ

Pink Flor in Puerto Rico - 14th September 2015

Puerto Rican Beer - mmmmmm
View from my Hotel Balcony. Need to get to that beach
Love this cobbled road..... Have to go a car is coming!
Found some new friends. But they need to improve their manners as they poop every where
Can you see me?
The main gate to Puerto Rico. Once used by royalty. Perfect I renewed the tradition.

This is the place.
Now we're talking. Found the good stuff.
En suite shower. What could be better

Too much sun, Lucky I found this parasol.
Nice wine with dinner.
Had to hire this body guard to protect me from my internet fans.

At last the beech. Now where is the waiter?

I always wanted to drive a trolley. One more off my bucket list.
Now that is a bottle of wine!
An apartment made for me. This is the smallest apartment in the world.

Went to see the Chapel, but alas it was closed.
Went shopping and fell in love with this hat. Great for the sun.

Hendricks, Tonic and Cucumber perfect
Followed by octopus cerviche
Puerto Rican rum, mmmmm delicious
I capped off the night by singing a number with the band

Salsa night
Italian Pasta on the last night. Why do holidays finish so quickly
