Travel Blogs from Salento
After our breakfast at the Platypus we went in 2 taxis to
the edge of town where the cities very big bus station is located. We felt like
kids following the pied piper around while the tour guide bought our tickets
and we boarded our first Colombian bus. We were pleasantly surprised with how
luxurious it was, with very large spacious seats and wifi on board and

The Korean girl had a blue umbrella to protect her from the rain, and ...
... enough we were trotting along and loving it! We rode to a cascada where a few of us had a freezing dip. Refreshed, we trotted back through beautiful valleys and splashed across rivers. We'll ride again. Day 4: to Cali. Sad to leave Salento. As we left, it felt like nothing would go right. On a horrible bouncy bus to Armenia, a late broken bus 4 hours to Cali.
