I have spent the last six days relaxing at the little rustic beach resort of Taganga,which is a few kilometers from the port city of Santa Marta.

I have made no attempt to do anything remotely taxing other than a day trip to a dry tropical forest in the Tayrona National Park.This was more of an excuse to have a little exercise.

... forest changes to pine and then the bare peaks at almost 3000m. I am in part of the highest coastal range on earth, just 42 km from the sea the peaks rise to almost 5500m. Unfortunately for me the highest peaks are in an area set aside for the indigenous peoples that live there and the highest peak is sacred so unclimbable.

We never thought about the credit card in our pocket (Duh!), nor did the owner, but when we got back to ...

... wait until there are enough passengers to fill the car, and head off. I spent the entire hour long ride getting to know my new Californian friend and quickly realized that we should coordinate our stay in Minca so that we can do a day hike together. We arrive in this tiny town nestled in the rainforest half way up a mountain, and as instructed by my aunt's friends, I start individuals if they know the way to the "cake lady's" house. And true enough, they do! I had to ...
