Well this has to be one of the worst bus journeys we did through the whole of this country and for those who read the blog know its been a few - the drivers found it hilarious to put the air con on super super super cold all night - yes its normally cold but this was ridiculous even the locals were complaining but they did nothing.  So it proved to be a long old night, I had my hat covers face mask thing the works and I shivered all night - I woke at one point to see that Marc was no longer beside me !!!!!!  PANIC cause he gets off for a fag sometimes and these drivers dont care - but we were moving so in my state of drowsy panic I search the bus for him - I find him in the very back seat with his jacket on back to front and the hood up covering his face !!!!  It was slightly warmer at the back - he didnt want to disturb me he says but I wouldn't mind have being disturbed for some heat!!  We finally arrived sharesd a cab with a fellow frozen traveller and get to our hostel - we are in dorms again trying to save money :-(( 

We spend the next few days exploring the city the architecture is beautiful and all the buildings are nice and colourful.  We spend a sunset at Cafe del Mar which was ridiculously expensive for beers but the view was great - unfortunately the sunset was rubbish :-((

Not much else to report from here we were only here a few nights, next stop Taganga
