Salento

I stopped by in Medellin again for a few days to break up the trip from Cartagena to Cali. It’s a great city and I was so glad to be back in the land of hot showers, reasonable temperatures and free from mosquitoes! I managed to squeeze in seeing Luisa, Alberto and Norida again. I…

Medellin

Having jetted off to resume the adventure I found myself in Medellin without a bag, which had apparently been left in Bogotá. A form was filled out and I made my way to hostel la playa and rooftop, which is a great hostel. Each bed has its own fan and power sockets, plus there is…

Carnaval! Barranquilla

Medillin episode isn’t finished but should really come before this… It was an early start as I needed to rise at 3.30 to get my flight. I’d booked fairly late on so only myself to blame but at least got a few hours in a nice bed which I still maintain is better than a…

I found this out after thinking to visit the Atrapalo agency in Santiago only to find its the head office or something…

Mendoza / Luján de Cuyo

Some photos of group/ art I forgot from the last entry in Cordoba shoe horned in here…. Carrafa museum and the law tribunales. Points for anyone who recognises the band depicted: Next up was the bus overnight Mendoza. We had been super diligent in the station, splitting up and asking all the companies for the…

Córdoba and Carlos Paz

The bus to Córdoba took about six and half hours following an hour delay and I got to my airbnb having split for different accommodation spots with Joao. It apparently wasn’t a super cheap entire apartment as had been written. It was instead a private room with two other guys living there permanently. Any complaint…
