So whatīs to do around here? The beach at Taganga, 5 kmīs away is quite nice and Tayrona National Park is supposedly world famous for itīs beaches and jungle. I spent a couple days there and although it was overcast most of the time, I agree that itīs a great park and nice place. It was full of young Colombians on their annual camping trip to get away from the big cities like Bogota, Medellin, and Cali. Colombians are extremely outgoing and friendly and since they donīt see as many tourists as other countries, they are always interested in talking to you. The reaction I get from the average Colombian when I say Iīm American is "thatīs great, Iīm glad you are here in my country." And the next thing you know, you have 10 e-mail addresses and invitations to stop by when I get to their home town. So far, everything is going well here in this forbidden land called Colombia.
