1. Taking a taxi from the Embassy to my apartment. It's about a 30 minute drive in the daytime and taxi drivers always take the back routes, so you get to see a good bit of Bogotá.
2. Having nicely-organized iTunes genres.
3. When I can get my brother to consciously associate a Spanish word with its English counterpart.
4. Mastering public transportation in foreign cities. (Once I've done this I consider the city owned.)
5. Seasonally appropriate socks.
