Still hope for Colombia

Matt woke me up at 4 am since he was leaving back home to Canada. I gave him a postcard addressed to him and his brother Colin. We also exchanged reading recommendations. He recommended “Jitterbug Perfume”, while I recommended “Shantaram”. After that we said goodbye, and he left.

Later in the morning, I went to the Colombian embassy where after asking me a few questions, they asked me to submit all the required documents. If all the documents are in order, then I should get a tourist visa to Colombia!!

Painted on one of the walls in my hostel:

Nobody can take away from you…
The dances you have danced,
The food you have eaten,
Or the travels you have traveled

  1. Nothing like a good travel story. Reading about Ecuador makes us want to return so much. We also recomend Jitterbug Perfume and loved Shantaram, have met the author Greg Roberts and had our book signed with a poem.
