I left Bogota first thing saturday morning, 7 days in Bogota was plenty, really not the most endearing place imho.

I decided to go straight for Medellin, apparently there is only one road there. It was a busy 8 hours of adrenaline pumping passing and splitting lane action. Pretty countryside, though the one place I stopped to eat ripped me off! Charming!
I arrive in Medellin in the dark to a busy saturday night. Busy it was!
I wander and wander around looking for the motorcycle friendly guesthouse that was recommended. I must have noted the gps coordinates incorrectly.
Couldn't find the place, so I settled for a cheap hotel with secure parking. Turned out to be a leaky smelly shithole with drunks carrousing outside my window all night.
The next day had a nice breakfast and coffee, then found the intended guesthouse. It was indeed very moto friendly and more, great place.
