Day 2 - Caucasia to well…Caucasia
This was a big climb day so everyone was pretty anxious and psyched to see how we were going to handle the climb. The first 100k was scheduled to be rolling but fairly flat. This is the only road to Medellin from this part. It is called the PanAmerican Highway. All commerce moves by trucks. So very heavily traveled. There are no trains here because of the mountains everywhere. ...

You could walk it but it would take up to an hour and the tuc tuc was only 10,000 peso so its a far better option considering how hot it was at that time.

... seem to bother anyone when talking about it later.
But having said all that its not as bad as its image suggests, its simple, be safe and nothing will happen. Go for a walk through Elizabeth at night and your gonna get in ****. Same deal here. So I highly reccomend everyone to come experience this place before it gets flooded with tourists. It wont take long!
