We took the 6.30am bus from Medellin this morning, reaching the entrance to Salento at about 12 noon. The bus driver told us we could get a taxi or bus from here into the town as it is still another 9km away. We didn´t see any taxis and the buses wouldn´t pick us up because they were so full so we started walking down to Salento.
We walked into the center of town, a really nice plaza with brightly coloured buildings and lots of artisans shops. Nathan spied lollies from home so in he went! We then spotted the 2 Israilis we had met on the Lost City trek and had a wee catch up. It´s amazing the amount of travellers you meet on the way and then see them again at some stage, it is happening at least once a week now.
We had a nice lunch-dinner at a restaurante in the plaza called ´Somy´, huge bit of chicken, salad, rice, bread and drink all for about $7NZD each. We then walked up the steps for a view of Salento which was our exercise for the day!
We have pretty much been lazing at the guesthouse this evening, nice people to chat to and Tim, the owner introduced us to his 3 Collies and his 6 Collie pups at his house, which has one hell of a nice view!
Could stay here longer, but will see what happens!
