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.

... trekked to Cascada del Hornoyaco, still impressive and I got to enjoy it on my own - again! Travelling does see you meet some 'alternative' people and Mocoa was no different, here there seemed to be a lot of people wanting to do Ayhuasca (a strong hallucinogenic drug). One 18 year old British girl couldn't even pronounce the drug yet told me she had been called to it for several years! And another girl after her ceremony the night before decided to change all her plans and ...
