The streets seem really empty. Were you in the business district on an off day?

Is it graffiti, or "urban art"? Seems like the stuff in your pictures was actually intended as art.

Glad to see everything seems to be going fine. Is it okay to drink the tap water in Columbia, or do you need to stick to bottles like in Mexico?

We were in a slow area so there wasnít a lot of foot traffic. A few blocks away there were tons of people.

They call all of it graffiti but itís done by artists. I would just call that art but they choose not to. We are going on a graffiti tour tomorrow.

The water in Colombia is safe to drink. I think Peru and Bolivia are a big no no on drinking the water.

Glad you are off to a fairly good start.
i'll have to go back and try to figure out all that daunting math, but it sounds like fun to pay 55,000 pesos for a meal.
Going to take me longer to do the math of pesos into Canadian Dollars than it took you to eat the meal!!
Tnx.


NOTE; I rounded off 2365 to 2000. that makes your share $cdn 27.50. A real bargain.
Only took me a short time using pen and paper. No hope of getting it otherwise, so i'm just going to stick with the rounded off figure.
Have no idea if actual is higher or lower, but figure rounded off is close enough.

Looking forward to an update from PG. Columbia's a pretty violent place. Reports of 21 dead after a police academy was shot up. Who shoots up a police academy and expects to get away with it?

Your whiteness is showing:) Colombia is a country not a university or outdoors gear company. Itís so dangerous theyíll threaten to cut your hand off if you spell the country name wrong.

It's been about 10 days now since you've updated your trip and even though I did see you post here recently I'm getting worried.

You didn't accidentally cross the border into Venezuela did you?

If you're being held captive just post "Viva la revolución" so we'll know you are in trouble and then we can get the Mounties on their way to rescue you.
