We crossed the border around 1am. No big thing, I stamped out, crossed a bridge and stamped in. Welcome to Colombia! No checks of the bus or persons.
They played a few movies on the bus but they were in Spanish with no subtitles. I didn't mind as they provided sweet relief to the SA Music the guy across from me continued to play.

... everyone staying without any technological distractions. On our second day we did a 7 hour loop walk from the hostel, up to the mirador were we had gone for sunrise earlier in the morning, then down into Minca town (a long 3 hours downhill and an even longer 90 minutes up!) past a coffee farm and Pozo Azul, which is meant to be a beautiful swimming lake.

... a bit more -- very old, a bit sketchy (you clearly don't want to be here at night) -- but interesting. We wandered into an old church (1783), and got the kids a little treat (mani chocolat -- chocolate covered peanuts) ... And then decided to use Tappsi to find a cab back.
We were now pretty tired - and ready for a glass of wine. Back home, and I made Columbian beef stew, which turned out pretty good!
