A last look at Taganga as headed out of town:
I headed out of town and stopped at this tienda and made friends with this Colombiana who was very interested to know where I was going:
Continued on to Tayrona National Parque. Here's the turnoff:
Where I ate some lunch with a Chileno:
But alas, the buses were many and the lineup at Tayrona was long. And the computers were down. After waiting a while, I said to myself, WTH? and decided to head down the road. The hell with Tayrona. I headed down and stopped to check out the Caribbean at this overlook:
Some people stopped and asked me how the hell I had ridden a 250 Kawasaki from the U.S. down to Colombia. Here are Johan and his wife and son Lucas. He owns a coffee shop in Taganga and told me he was going to Palomino to the Dreamer Hostel on the beach for the weekend. Wow! I never question serendipity. Locals know the good spots to hang out. Sounded good to me. Here are Johan and family:
Here is the road to the Dreamer Hostel. A little rough. But that's how I like it:
Parked next to the registration area:

Got a bed in the dormitory for 29,000 pesos (16.67)

It's an upscale Euro hostel kind of place with lots of cute 20 something women staying here. I'm old enough to be most of these people's grandpa, so once again, I am the oldest person here by a generation or two. Ah well. It's a nice place.
