Mateo had a big wavy coiffure, he was softly spoken, very politically conscious and moralistic and educated me on Colombian historical past throughout the trek. We all sat around a desk along with the Croatian couple and I introduced everybody to the game ‘cheat’ and got individuals from all of the corners off the world enjoying a recreation which I used to play at university. Spent a couple of days right here partly as a result of we had a very cool group of people in our dorm room. There was an English boy who carried around a machete with him for his jungle treks, 2 English ladies and a British man who was serving within the navy plus me and Josh.

Most people who go will tell you it's their favourite place in South America, it was mine, till I stayed in Brazil for so long. Our first cease in Colombia was Cali, to get there nonetheless we must take a 12 hour bus stuffed with locals.
The Bolivian border was a tiny little hut in middle of nowhere with a Bolivian flag flying excessive, we got via and had been ready to start out our first South American adventure. While reserving a jeep you must be careful, some were notoriously sketchy and so with a slight trepidation we booked one of the finances ones.
We journeyed by way of complete wilderness, researching the warfare on drugs I seemed out of the window and wondered what number of coca cultivation fields we had pasted. We had no Colombian pesos however a really nice guy who shared the journey with us taken care of us and acquired us a couple of issues. They have to be a few of the friendliest and most welcoming individuals I got here throughout; maybe they want to disprove their popularity.
It arrived, our residence for the subsequent 3 days, we had been anticipating cramped situations, apparently drunk drivers navigating us via hazardous landscapes but we were pleasantly stunned. It was just me, Josh, our driver, an old native who’d seemed like he had seen a couple of issues and a Brazilian guy in his 30’s called Luciano. He spoke reasonably good English so we got a spacious jeep and a translator. The first day street tripping by way of the desert was unbelievable. A instances when you travel an space you meet lots of vacationers who are primarily doing the same thing so you take what you’re planning on doing as a right.
It was at this point that each one the bus journeys now till Brazil would play funky salsa type music, an old local man behind me knew ALL the phrases and happily sang them for them complete 12 hours. We played playing cards during the night time, we had met Pablo and Mateo on the first day, collectively they made me snort a lot and made the trek a extra entertaining experience.
