Chronicles of an Adventure Foretold

After years of saying goodbye to my aunt in various London airports youd think id be used to it. Not so. It was really sad to see her go having spent a great two weeks together and sharing some of the experience. It was also really interesting to see Colombia through her eyes, having never travelled here before and not being a backpacker, the fact she loved it and the people made me love it all the more.
On the plus side i was joining forces with an "old" friend to travel Colombia for a few weeks. After surviving Patagnoia treks, Carnaval shennanigans and actually managing to join forces again Seb and I formed "Smel" and headed to Cali to begin our Colombian adventure. It started well with an ice cream breakfast at 7am in Crepes and Waffles in Bogota.
The next day was a lot more exciting. After a rather early start at 9am we caught a local colectivo for $18,000 to Cordoba to get out to San Cipriano. San Cipriano is famous for waterfalls and clear rivers and also the method of transport to get down there. The locals have taken the disused old railway and built wooden carts which they have afixed motorbikes to, and drive tourists to the falls for a mere $8,000 COP return.
