Roger Tries To Speak Spanish In Colombia

It was 1985 and Kathy (my wife) and I took a week's vacation in Cartagena, Colombia. It is an exotic South Ameican beach resort with 16th century castles that defended the Spanish colonial treasure. We brought our bikes; I don't speak Spanish.

So there I was in the airport in Cartagena, retrieving our luggage, and I noticed that the large canvas bag containing my bike was standing, zipper open, and the pump from my bike was missing. Consulting my trusty Spanish-English dictionary, I struggled to ask the baggage clerk, "Where is my pump?" or, as it came out, "Dondè esta mi bomba?" The airport employee got very agitated and called over a security guard. Inadvertently, I had asked "Where is my bomb?" Well, we sorted it all out and laughed, but I never recovered my pump. It's a good thing it was 1985.
