Of course after all that food and wine, I was running late to Villa de Leyva. I got there about dark. Here's the town square at night

I got in my tent and this cute little guy came over and slept right next to me the whole night. I guess he was feeling lonely that night

While I was setting up my tent, this group of kids were playing a game nearby. I went over and asked what they were playing and they invited me to play. Great group of kids. Some cutties too. I don't why some people in the US say bad things about the French, I think they are great

After the winery, I set off to do a hike to a 200 foot waterfall.
Every hiking trail here is on private property so the owners charge some money to access the trail. I was the only one around for miles and this older couple hears me coming and greets me at the trailhead. They ask for 1000 pesos (about 60 cents). A bargain.

Here's the waterfall.
I wanted to hang my feet over the ledge but I couldn't get down that far
