Fuelled with homemade granola and fruit (from the American Diner again) we set out for Valle de Cocora. We hopped on colourful jeeps from Salento main square for the half hour journey, on each jeep a few of the locals are on the back step holding on the back of the roof! We headed up the rocky track and eventually caught up with two local teenagers with fishing rods, one of which had grown up in Miami. We walked together half of the trip, they showed us an extra pathway down to a pretty waterfall and once they met their fishing spot, sending us on our way with direction. On the way up we had to cross 7 'one person' bridges made up of just planks of wood wired together - as usual the journey not the destination being the thrilling part in Colombia :). After an hour and a half uphill through lush green bush we finally made it to Acaime nature reserve as the first people for the day. We paid a small amount to get into the reserve and in return received a refreshing cup of a local drink made from pineapple skin (tasted like a delicious punch), saw hummingbirds and a cosumbo. They had lots of hummingbirds from 4 different species fluttering about - they were stunning colours but moved so quickly it was near impossible to get a photo to do them justice. While we were there we were lucky enough to see a cosumbo, a large racoon type animal with a long snout that resides in the forest around there. The lady explained these animals were eating the food she would put out for the chickens and she has resorted to feeding them runny chocolate and cheese as it's the only things they like more!!
