That's where the south america comes in and it was back in nineteen sixty nine and It was columbia's very safe. It wasn't it was a little little dicey for diplomats kids. There was actually. We'd been there about a month. When i think the swiss ambassador son was kidnapped But apart from that it was weird because we were like middle class family and we lived in the states but for four years in south america.

I'm afraid of the clicks and i was like what the hell ism frigging click. I thought kind of those aren't arm evildoers right. But that's cleveland was just sort of normal. I really kinda got into acting. I've done a little bit in south america. I saw play on there. And i just thought this is cool and then in high school did you know did plays then. I realized it was one of the few things those kinda. I wanted to be a baseball player. But when i was in south america we didn't play baseball by the time i moved back to the states.
