... was really good so on my last morning here I decided to go along. All over the city there is so much graffiti so it was really interesting to find out some information about this, the guide was really enthusiastic and passionate about the art and he personally knows a majority of the artists which gives you a greater insight into it. After being in three cities I am now ready for some countryside, another freezing cold night bus to look forward ...
... they are very elegant looking. It was lovely so I had another. In an effort to escape our over-friendly new acquaintances we went with a group of friends to an interesting-sounding bar in a converted bowling alley. I called it semi-converted earlier because I think you can still bowl there, they have 3 small retro-looking lanes. It is actually a very cool place, but the music is painfully loud. The floor is made of ceramic tiles so the sound echoes of every surface. ...
... we had been recommended to go to for authentic Colombian food opened. We dined at Fulanito´s, and were, of course, the first people there, which meant we had seats on the fabulous upstairs terrace with a view of the Old Town. Jon and I picked some traditional dishes and enjoyed them very much. It was then, staring down at the giant slice of avocado to avoid eye contact with the beautiful green-eyed waiter, that I knew I would enjoy Colombia. ...
... into a mountain outside the town, the cathedral is 75m long, 18m high and can accommodate 8,400 people. It is accessed by walking past the stations of the cross which are all carved from salt rock and pleasantly illuminated.
Once again the allure of cheap Colombian air travel prevailed, so we flew on the country's equivalent of RyanAir to Cali to save on a 12-hour bus. From Cali we caught a bus to Popayan, 3 hours.
... not soo many interesting animals (at least after the Galapagos). We did see some moray eels, a lobster, spider crabs, ?? And it was enjoyable, with a very nice guide, Camila, so it was a well spent morning. After the dive I had lunch with Harrison, a guy I've run into a few times in Colombia and who was also on the dive, wandered around the tiny town a bit, and then took a local bus back to my hostel in Santa Marta. I spent the rest of the day relaxing.
