Lazy Sunday BBQ

A travel blog entry by davidandmaria


... barbecue about 4pm and started the slow cooking of big chicken pieces shortly after. The chicken was joined by chorizos, pork, steak, peppers and onions giving off a fantastic aroma. By 6pm everything was ready and a big queue formed, it didn't take long to serve everyone though and we were soon sitting down to tuck in - it tasted delicious and there was plenty left over for seconds too. Kiwis definitely know how to ...

Another 5 minute walk to the base, we pay the $12000 entrance and start ascending the 650 concrete steps that look to be wedged in a huge fissure running up the side of the rock. Stopping every 100 steps to rest ...

Days 148 - 150: Medellin, Colombia

A travel blog entry by tksa

Tuesday 18th February - Day 148

We arrived at the Ecuador - Colombia border at about 3am. These borders are generally pretty grim places and at night they look even worse. To top it off we were already pretty nervous about travelling through the south of Colombia, an area in which fighting between the many paramilitary and guerrilla groups that have taken over Colombia's drug trade is common. These days Colombia is a hell of a ...
