The hotel hadn't come to life by 7.30 so nipped off to the French bakery for a coffee & croissant before my hotel El Solar continental breakfast, which was fruit, toast & homemade jam and coffee – together with a really nice new room, good bedding, proper (not one of those cheap head attachments that always electrocute you!) hot water, close to plaza and only 25k for my room – best deal in Colombia so far!
