arriving to the Terminal, small city but with a well organized terminal
As planned we left the hostel early. We barely had change for the taxi, hahaha. So good it was Monday and the fee on a weekday was lower, hahaha. Not even 1 min before leaving the cab, there were already some guys promoting their buses, hahaha. Ok, let's find the better deal to Cali. I told them bus driving from Cali to Popayan stopped several times and I was looking for a direct bus. There were buses every 15min, sweet. So there was time to grab a bite, even sweeter!

There were a few cafeterias. They all looked the same, but there was a policeman eating in one of them. That should be a good sign. I asked for a fruit salad, but they didn't serve that. I even tried to convince them to chop a pineapple that was there, but this would be used for something else, oh well.
yummy bunuelo!!! round cheese bread ;)
.. I tried to eat healthy, but they didn't let me, hahaha.

Shawn wanted an empanada. I tried one the day before and wasn't that impressed with it. Here they have a special empanada "pipian", but it's just stuffed with potato. Potato inside potato... I'd like to try something new... there was another snack I was missing to try: bunuelos. Which are a round pastry with cheese. Almost like a round cheese bread, hahaha. It was still warm, delicious!!! Best discover in Popayan. To drink a lulo juice ;)

After a tasty breakfast, it was time to look for the buses, hehehe. I asked the guy at what time they'd leave and came back just on time. He wasn't sure if I'd come back and was glad I did, hahaha. It was almost 8am when we left Popayan and no stop, well just 1 but that was fine.
