now just about to go find some food and probaby a cerveça or two. we are making our way over to bogota for a flight to the bottom of peru on the 7th (which was spastically expensive by the way and nearly killed us!
that afternoon we went and found some food and then stumbled across a bar called EL pub, had a shamrock on the outside so had to be good huh?! we went in at about 5pm and started chatting to gabriel the owner, he was a very cool cat, at 10pm we were still there and he started to close the bar so he could take us out to a salsatech, about 12am and already rather boozed we set off to find the happening place. we ended up in the next town at a pretty cool place.
there was only one bar tender for the whole place so you bought your drinks by the bottle (eg bottke of vodka, rum etc) our hosts got us a bottle of aguadiente (local fire water) wholey moley!!! i tried to be sneaky and hide some of the bottle in an empty water glass which our friend then poured into my glass cause he thought it was water......fast acting Karma id say!
next day i was nursing a wee hang over and Gabriel came and picked us up at lunch time for our escorted city tour, he took us into town and showed us everything..it was wicked. was quite funny cause even he was amazed at the excessive attention we attracted, cars pulling over etc :) hot property we were!! that evening we went back and had a few drinks with him and then treated ourselves to a tapas restaurant that he also part owned, it was amazing!!! then back to EL pub where i remained until 7am... there is alot to be said for a lock in!!
next day we sorted our lives out ish and then got on a bus to armenia near the coffee regioned us!).
