Waterworld

While in Colombia I had the opportunity to visit an island village called Santa Cruz del Islote.  Upon approaching the island the first thing that came to mind was the movie “Waterworld”.  The island is about the size of two football fields with about 950 people calling it home.   It is unoffically the worlds most crowded island.  As you might expect the people were poor and the living conditions were horrible…the most ironic thing was approximately 1000 meter away was another island containing a luxury resort.   Most families on waterworld survived by fishing or servicing the occupants on the luxury island.  The experiance really made me appreciate the opportunities that I have.  With that being said I had a great time surveying the country and working with the Colombian Marines…I also give Hooters Bogota two thumbs up!
