Such a beautiful country, and on a whole the people are kind, friendly and helpful. The food is out of this world, and there is a lot to discover. This is my second visit, did some touristy stuff two years ago, visited Cartegena, Barranquilla, Santa Marta, Medellín, Santa Fe de Antioquia, Guatape, Bogotá. I have only scratched the surface, really keen to see the natural beauty of the varied landscapes here.
But it's difficult as we are here on a mercy mission for a dying man. So if you don't mind I will be blogging to fill time.
As for cycling, I've never known a more courteous and patient attitude towards cyclists than Medellín. The pace is a few steps down from rat race London.
Direct flights to Bogotá from London with Avianca means you don't have to go via USA Esta immigration check, or be scrutinised by Trump's nazi behaviour towards Latin America.
