    ... owners are incredibly nice. Salento is a very traditional "Colombian" town, whereas Villa de Leyva felt more Spanish.

    Tomorrow will be a long day of hiking in the Valle de Corcora and visiting a coffee farm, so I'm going to post a few pics and then hit the hay. I think the valley will be amazing!
