working out en El parque de barras …

This short article I would like to dedicate all my friends from JOKO, who I was exercising with – especially: David, Vasko,  Marcus, Bitch from Egypt:), HaeBong, Tuan, and others girls …;)

Many of my friends experienced me as, someone who was working out pretty often… As I arrived to Bogota, I took into account that it will be dificult to find some comparable place with JOKO Fitnessraum… At the beginning (first 2 weeks) I was feeling awful without sport; trying to replace this feeling by some exercises at my room – it wasn’t the same! More place and friends were asked!!! After couple of days I’ve recognized that near by the place I am living, there is a so called el parque con barras . First on one hand  I was really exited, on the other hand scared about ..hmm,  you know what I mean. Everybody (in Germany) I was talking to, were telling me, Colombia, Bogota are dangerous, etc. bla bla; f*k, stop stigmatizing Colombia, life in Bogota is similar dangerous as in, I don’t know .. in Berlin. Just stop watching lying TV and reading dishonest papers about Colombia, and come here to experience, honest, open-minded, happy and helpful people!!! … sorry, I am digressing from my main topic (but it was really important to say it!); as I said, at the beginning I was scared to go out, and work out in el parque; I thought, damn it!  it’s not a juggle;  I went there and started to do my routine; with the time more people was coming and were staring at me;) (nice feeling! maybe they were laughing at me, I didn’t mind); more and more people were coming; Normally I am talking a lot: I could stand; I started talk to the people there, who were working out; my Spanish is not amazing, but they were exited about I am trying to speak their language; they appreciated that; They asked me, where do I come from, what I am doing here, about my family, … and of course what I am thinking about girls from Columbia;) – they are certainly muy amable y maravilloso!!! Moreover we were talking about exercises, routines and general about calisthenics (this the art of sport, I am doing) since then I have a lot of  buddies who I am working out with;D… And this is the proof that sport really connect people!
