Where I stayed
As we drove into the valley it was pouring rain and very cold. According to the bible we should be seeing these palms about 5 minutes after we passed the cute and quaint village of Salento. However, we werenīt really seeing many palms. We kept driving. A few times we almost turned back thinking we had missed something
We took a long leisurely walk down the road, East of town, and through the jungle. It was absolutely magical. Devin and I sometimes have to pinch ourselves to remember how lucky we are to be living this waking dream. We took several pictures but, as always, the pictures never do the scene justice. We will just have to remember that afternoon and itīs magic forever in our hearts.
