I will never forget that grateful face from my buddy Mike when I picked him up from the airport.

"Oh, that wouldn't have been necessary, oh how touched I am".

Good Mike almost has tears in his eyes from all the emotion.
The whole island is on its feet.
There will be drumming and music - the honorable men from the military and politics will stand guard, in the evening there will even be fireworks.

I just can't bring myself to explain to Mike that this effort is not because of him, but because of 200 years of Colombia's independence.

But someday I'll tell him ;o)
