Popayán: Contention

Popayán: Contention

Popayán: Contention. July 13. There is nothing really more uninteresting than a semi-content man.  Contention takes the edge off and dulls a sharp knife.  I feel that right now in this awesome Colombian fling.  It is why, as a journalist, settling down really does not have any appeal to me at all right now.
