At Bogota airport we have a few hours wait before our flight to Cucuta which is a border town on the west of Columbia before we drive out of here to Venezuela tomorrow morning.
In the few hours we manage to eat, play cards, watch more footie etc. We notice on the flight board that our flight is delayed by 15 mins so we wait. Next thing one of our group comes to tell us we have to get a bus to another terminal for our flight. So we all head off to get the bus to be told our flight has left. Then by someone else no it hasnt and that we should get this bus to the other terminal. We do as we are told and get to the other terminal to go through security all over again. Get to the gate we were told to go to where there is nooone and then told to go to another where there is noone. Eventually told the flight has gone so we need to get one tomorrow. All traipse to ticket office where they change our tickets for tomorrow and we are all confused as to what has happened! They organise a hotel for us and a minibus to take us there (all free of charge of course). They then tell us our luggage is in Cucuta then no its here and then actually it is in Cucuta. We eventually head off to the hotel hoping it is nice. Sure enough it is very nice and we have a great room with a bath too (I am v excited by this prospect havent had a bath since Japan). We also get a free 3 course dinner. By this time I am telling Dave that I have specifically organised all this for Dave specially for his birthday but dont think he believes me. We have an early night as are being picked up at 4.30am next day - ouch!
