Thanksgiving on a bus w/ an Aussie

... neighborhood I lived in these last three months.

Food was good. There was so much of it... so ******* much. Gloria kept coming around, making people take shots of augardiente... eckkkk.

Really fun night, after dinner boys said if I wanted to hang out more they would oblige me. Check!
Bought people a round in Parque Envigado, which was decked out in Christmas lights. Good times. I was sorry that I couldn't invite more people to go, but ...

Tejo, Wax Palm Trees and Salsa!

A travel blog entry by the5wynns


... We returned to the trailhead by 12:15 pm, just in time for the group of Willies to be caravanning back to Salento. Again, we piled in, and picked up, according to Ari's count, 18 people, including a group of elementary school students hanging off the back. We were laughing recalling the time my kids were in the back of a pick-up truck in West Virginia, going 10 mph tops, and were pulled over by the police. Something tells me this Willie set up wouldn’t ...

Coffee farms and tall wax palms in Valle de Cocora

This is a top pick!

... to see the dog was there looking up waiting for me to throw the stick, I felt guilty about leaving her, but i'm sure someone else will throw it for her again soon. We went back to the hostel and as we had a log fire in our room, we made use of this and lit the fire. It was so cosy with the fire as it reminded me if being back home. We packed up all our stuff, ready for our big journey tomorrow, as we are travelling to Popayan as a stopover to get to Ecuador.


Coffee, chocolate and cheese

... from the berries, dried and roasted and then we got to try the freshly brewed coffee afterwards. It was a brilliant tour and the farm and surroundings were so tranquil it made us wish we were staying.

On our way back up to town, we heard an air-raid siren going off loudly nearby. Thinking it might signal some emergency, we asked Tim what it was. He told us that the siren was supposed to be for emergencies but really was just used to signal lunch ...

Strikes, Cocora, and more beer and dynamite!

... forests (the national tree of Colombia, grows to 60 meters). We took a tour of a coffee plantation and learned just how complicated the process of cultivating, growing, harvesting, and preparing the coffee beans is. We even got to help with the last few steps, then roast the beans on the stove, grind it up, and drink it. Abby even enjoyed her first cup of coffee. <gasp!>

Our days here are full but leisurely. We managed ...

    I camped in the grounds and they shut the door to the dormitory at night so we could not use the toilets. I do not mind this but they should advertise it as a place with facilities if they are going to lock you out.

    Pleasant surroundings none the less, I would only overnight here as it is quite far out of town
