|Up through rolling farmland|
|across Indiana Jones bridge|
|Into cloud forest|
|Butterflies loved my rucksack|
|King of hummingbirds|
|Never seen a black & white one before|
|No idea what this is|
Stayed a couple of days in Salento, a town that was having a (6 day) festival to celebrate coffee harvest; the WWII Willys jeep is very popular here as a workhorse for transporting sacks of coffee, they even had a a procession using kid-sized jeeps to celebrate their popularity.
|Still in use|
Moved on to Santa Rosa to visit the hot springs - stayed in a lovely old hotel reminiscent of a Swiss chalet up in the mountains; cascading waterfalls, a hot spring falling into a man-made pool where I spent a couple of days relaxing.
|Thats steam not mist|
|Cold water fall|
|lovely old hotel interior|
Drove on down towards Cali, the salsa capital of Colombia (that's the dance, not the hot sauce ;) - yeah, a young lady I attempted to dance with at the fiesta in Salento was not impressed with my 'Dad' dancing and suggested I go to Cali to take dance lessons. Stopped off at a town called Buga that has a famous Basilica where pilgrims come from all over Colombia to get healed of illness - not sure if it works, but there was a lovely old colonial hotel across the road with a swimming pool and jacuzzi where I scored an executive suite overlooking the pool for such a ridiculously cheap price that I just had to stay there!
|Basilica with virgin in front|
|Spent many hours in this lovely swimming pool|
|So hectic here!|
