This morning we bid adieu to Bogota. We had a long ride to San Gil. San Gil is the adventure sports capital of Colombia. When I say long I mean really long. We left at 7 AM and arrived at 9:30 PM.
We stopped at the location of the definitive battle that gained Colombia its independence. We also stopped in a small tourist village with a gigantic square. It was picturesque, but it was the antique shop I passed as we were walking towards our bus that really caught my eye. It was just like a scene out of American Pickers—maybe there should be a Colombian version.
Through the front window of the bus, I saw a scene that reminded me of Vietnamese. I saw something carrying a bicycle on a motorcycle.
On the drive we saw so many cyclists training. Colombians are passionate about cycling and I had a chance to talk to a few of them, and that was Today’s Perfect Moment.
