I’ve made lots of stupid and silly mistakes during my travels. One of them finally came back to haunt me. I lost my phone Thursday night after stepping on the wrong bus which I thought was going to the main bus station in Bogota. I put my phone down on a seat and forgot to grab it when I stepped off and the bus drove away with it.

I noticed pretty much right away and I was went to the police at a nearby metro station to report the incident. They managed to call my phone and eventually a lady picked up. The police ended up organizing a meet up the following afternoon where I would meet here in front of the National Museum.

What followed was a series of miscommunications. I was expecting the police officer to be at the meetup to help assist with the reunion of my phone. He wasn’t which was a problem. Looking back I should have my host call the police officer and the lady with my phone to clarify everything.

I ended up for waiting for 30 minutes before finding two police officers nearby. They spoke with the officer from last night and then called my phone again. The lady picked up but she wasn’t at the meetup spot. She had left a while ago and didn’t plan on coming back.

The police officer and myself have repeatedly tried calling since Friday afternoon but there has been no answer. The phone is still ringing but my assumption it is on silent in a drawer or cabinet somewhere. It looks like I will have to get a new phone.

Feel free to share any similar experiences you might have had with phones or other values in the comments section. Anyways onto Flakes...
