Day 6 in Bogotá


Hoy me levanté a eso de las 11:00 AM, lo que significa que dormí cerca de cuatro horas. A las 12:30 me pasaron a buscar y nos fuimos de nuevo para la Fundación Santa Fe, donde estuvimos trabajando hasta las 8, lidiando con los muchos problemas que tenía el servidor. Al final del día, estaba bien claro que esa máquina necesitaba ser reinstalada de cero, así que me puse en campaña para conseguir el software de SunOS (Solaris), ya que no lo teníamos. Lo dejé bajando de internet desde el hotel, esperando tenerlo listo para el sábado. A eso de las 3:30 AM, ya estaba. Seguramente deba quedarme un día mas, yéndome a Panamá el lunes en lugar de el domingo.

Me siento muy enfermo hoy, con dolor de estómago. Sólo comí una pechuga de pollo con arroz al mediodía y lo más probable es que no cene.

Apuntes bogoteños:
* Cuando uno dice 'gracias' la gente responde 'con mucho gusto' en lugar de 'de nada'.
* Ya sé que lo he comentado, pero qué raro es el clima aquí! Sale el sol, se nubla por completo con unos nubarrones negros que dan miedo, llueven tres gotas locas, sale el sol de nuevo. Todo en una hora...


I got up at around 11:00 AM today, which means that I slept about 4 hours. They picked me up at 12:30 and we went to Fundación Santa Fe again, where we stayed working until 8:00 PM, dealing with the many problems that the server had. At the end of the day, it became evident that this machine needed to be re-staged from scratch, so I took on the task of obtaining the SunOS software (Solaris), because we didn't have the DVD. I downloaded it from the internet (in my hotel room), hoping it would be ready for Saturday. I verified that the download finished by 3:30 AM. I will probably need to stay one more day, leaving to Panama on Monday instead of tomorrow Sunday.

I feel very sick today, probably a stomach flu. I only had a chicken breast with rice today and chances are I won't have dinner.

Some notes from Bogotá:
* Whenever you say thank you ('gracias') people will reply 'con mucho gusto', which could be translated as 'with pleasure' (or the 'avec plaisir' in French).
* I know I had talked about this already, but how strange is the weather here in Bogotá! Sun comes out, then it gets completely clouded, with some big black clouds that inspire fear, then you get a three-drops rain, and then it's sunny again. All that within an hour...
