I have been speaking all in Spanish and even though I am rusty it seems to work:) Yay!!!
I landed in Bogota Columbia and it GORGEOUS!!!! Overcast and cool but so green and lush.... Obviously tropical. People here are so nice and technology is actually modern! I have. 4 hour layover before I get to Santa Marta and I finally found free wifi... Not enough time to venture into the city, traffic is bad here told.
For travelers who plan on buying anything in Columbia make sure you get your entry customs form stamped when you grab your luggage so that you avoid paying taxes on the items you buy when you leave. I don't plan on buying anything but it's good info to know.
See you in Bogota:)
