... 30 - $35, and my cheapest day so far? $14.50!! I couldn't believe it. That day, I had a beautiful hostel in a small indigenous village in the Northern Highlands for $7, cooked yummy food with some folks I met along the way, and spent another few dollars on a camioneta taxi to take us to a nearby lake where we hiked all day. Inexpensive days doesn't mean that I am skimping on the fun. Yesterday, for example, I rode a bike that I rented for ...
This morning we got picked up from the campground at 9:45 on the way to rafting. When we got to the river, we got dressed and were given a safety lesson. I've done rafting a few other times in South America but this was definitely the best and most thorough instructions. It was probably a good thing too because from the second we set the rafts into the water, we began moving down the river at a fast pace. We rafted around 16 kilometres down the river. ...

Whilst in Mocoa I visited waterfalls on both days; first Fin del Mundo, a 100m high waterfall that suddenly bursts off a precipice and, due to a lack of health and safety measures, you can lie down at the edge and peer over, a little scary I'll say. It was a day of adventure and I found the path which took you to the bottom of the waterfall and also had a good refreshing dip in the swimming holes (charcos) before the waterfall. The next day was a carbon copy ...
... out to $120 for 8 people including drinks.
We then walked around looking for someplace to dance but everything was closed so we settled on a multi-floor restaurant which had a pool table and served booze. I played against the twins one at a time and actually lost once to Rachel, she was the first girl to beat me in many many years so she was impressed, as was I. I left early as I found one of the Americans very annoying and loud, I settled in for the night.
