25th- 30th January 2016
It’s relatively rare that we feel we can take an actual break. There is usually something we want to do in a place, and that requires not only the say you do it, but also planning and arranging. It was therefore pretty nice to go to two cities where there wasn’t a ton we wanted to do, and not feel bad about ‘wasting’ our days there.
I’m also going to use this opportunity for a break in the blog. I didn’t take any pictures (even though Popayan was pretty), and I’m just going to do a few sentences as to what we did in each place.
Known largely as the salsa capital of Colombia, we didn’t engage in a ton of the nightlife. We went to a pretty gringo filled night just to get a glimpse of it, but the rest of the time was spent getting some rest after active Salento. I wasn’t all that keen on the city anyway, and there was nothing in particular I wanted to see.
This was a brief day stop for us on the way to our final proper stop in Colombia: San Agustin. It has a very beautiful old town where all the buildings are white washed, and a decent amount of shops. Again we didn’t do much, but we never really planned to.
So there it is, just for completeness. Planning on writing something slightly more interesting for San Agustin!
