    ... and added to the mood. We heard music in the main open area, it really is hard to explain the scale of this place. Yes it was touristy but very much worth it.

    Bought some emeralds in a little shop, walked back through the mine. We learned that it is still actively mined in other areas and has been used my indigenous peoples for 600 years. Dad explained that a salt mine is just a trapped ocean. We emerged from the depths, found our driver in the blinding light.

    ... We finished our walk down in this field with sporadic palm trees and nothing else around. It was so strange to see such tall structures standing alone and not in the middle of a forest. It was beautiful. The three of us sat in this field for about ten minutes just enjoying the serenity of where we were. There were no other people around, no other sounds, just nature.

    ... fully searched! Another one hour bus and we arrived in the quaint little town of Salento. Our hostel was 20 minutes out of town, so off we walked, ice creams in hand, through pretty streets, admiring the architecture and colours along the way.

    ... Montana was a godsend. Almost everyone had passed us on the way up and that little house still seemed almost out of reach. Only dogged determination got me up that mountain. Once seated and greeted by a jolly giant of a man, we take a look around and see the peak of the opposing mountain peeping through the clouds. Its breathtaking for sure.
