A very talkative but somewhat likeable lady sat down next to us, born in New Orleans but raised in Seattle, living here in Salento for the last year. She told us that she was a geologist for many years but had just started a hostel and foundation here, who know what kind of dreams or pain inspired her to come here, I often wonder that when I meet expats.
She told us about Mirador lookout toward the end of town, gave us some great ideas of coffee farms to walk to. ...
In my last post I let the pictures do the talking. They do say a lot (1000 × 10 = 10000), in fact almost as much as I write for a more normal post. But what they say is purely... descriptive. It's not the thought-inspiring, introspective type of thing I like to aim for when I can.

I travelled back to Cartagena to catch a flight to Pereira in the coffee region. On the way I think I picked up a couple of pen pals....A late 30s to early 40s Spanish woman and 24 year ...
... too bad, but knowing we then have to get 5 hour connecting bus to Armenia isn't too exciting a prospect. This bus was hell last time we did it. Linéa Los Andes is a 5 hour winding journey through the Andean mountains. The views can be incredible but the traffic a headache. Because it's the only route through this region all kinds of goods trucks, not to mention general traffic and buses. It's bank holiday Monday and we learn that goods trucks aren't allowed to travel, ...
