... to find the place. Not a great impression.
In the hostel all the dorms were full. I was obviously expecting to spend tonight on a bus so my booking doesn't kick in until tomorrow. Very nicely the lady offered me the sofa to crash on.

In case I haven't mentioned it yet: I love Colombia. It's beautiful. The people, the food, the landscape - all beautiful beyond what I ever imagined. To be honest I wasn't sure what to expect from Colombia. Many people had told me it was their favourite South American country, but in also had an idea of it as a dark and dangerous place where a mixture of cocaine and poverty reigned and no one could be trusted.
