Where I stayed
For shock factor and to scare my relatives, instead of telling the normal story I shall only leave in the (greatly exaggerated) bad parts:
-Taxi ride that was twice as long and twice as expensive as it should've been because rain traffic killed the traffic lines to bus station
-Lights shut off at Bogota bus station due to blackout
-Heavy traffic leaving Bogota thus delaying three hours
-Smelling fried grease (in reality - overactive sweat glands) on the bus
-Watching horror movies only on the night bus
-Tired achy joints from awkward sleeping positions
-Missed the stop to the volcano
-Waited 3 hours to catch the return bus
-Sat on the steps because there were no seats
-Watched the steep cliffs right beside the highway
-Watched a worker go out the side bus door straight into the passenger window - while the bus was moving.
-Got off the bus too early because I didn't think the bus was going to the station.
But it was all worth it - got amazing pictures. And helped a lot of people out and saw more of rural Colombia.
