days eighty eight through ninety one, 4-12-13 to 4-15-13

woke up in our hostel in buga and had our sights set on Ipiales on the border. an ambitious ride but very doable. the ride was amazing. winding through the Andes past deep gorges and beautiful scenery.

When we finially arrived in Ipiales we found a hotel called the gran hotel for 30 bucks and set out to find food. we found a place around the block that had giant plate of chicken rice, the best beans I have ever had, soup, salad, and juice all for 3 dollars. went back to the hotel and there was a note under our door from a lady that lived downstairs and taught english. the note said they never get people from the US in town and asked if we could stop in to her class in the morning. we met up with her and agreed on 8:30 and met her the next morning.

After about an hour of fielding questions from the students we went back to the hotel, packed our shit and set out toward a church I found on the internet a few miles away. it was fucking awesome.

they had llamas

After a little hike down to the check out the churck we set off toward the border of Ecuador and our further goal of Octavalo where marnix and lison had told us a place to camp. the ride was once again breathtaking.

more to come on this unfinished post, the internet is complete shit here!
