Pablo Escobar's home

... it out so we knew where it was for getting the visa on Monday. We went to the address listed and it didn't exist, we walked all around the surrounding blocks for over an hour asked numerous cab drivers, the police, locals & even local animals but to no avail. They were all very helpful and showed us exactly where the address was but the consulate wasn't there so we gave up and decided we would just have to call them on Monday morning and hope they pick the phone up ...

... walking and hiking tracks, and bike tracks (with free bike hire)!

Unfortunately, given that wed had no idea what to expect at the end of the line, we were unprepared for an extended hike, and the free bike hire was on every day except for Monday and Tuesday (of course!) so we took a long stroll into the bush, which was very relaxing and pleasant and just what we needed after the hectic bustling of the city.

Love it! We wanted to try and ...

We took a bus from Pereira to Medellin

... mountains where the air is surely cooler. It was. This bus ride was supposed to take 4 hours, instead it took 6.5 hours. The roads were good, but there was a lot of truck traffic. Also, we were winding around the mountains, eventually climbing to the top of the peaks and winding around the tops for hours. Sometimes, we could see down into the valleys, easily the valley floors were 2 miles down or more. This road is not for someone with ...
