PopayánMarch 19, 2015 in Colombia ⋅ 🌫 23 °C
Further northwest we hit the unknown magnificent colonial Colombian town of Popayán.
The city indeed is incredibly beautiful, the houses all painted in white, an incredible number of churches and these day's everything is being prepared for the holy Easter week, when tens of thousands of tourists come to see the dozens of religious processions and services. But the most beautiful part is that it is not a colonial museum, but a lively city, full of students.
After enjoying the beauty of the streets illuminated at night when we arrived, we took the next day to get to know the old town, tasting the excellent cuisine of the Cauca valley and simply enjoying being off the gringo trail and being the only tourists around.
Beautiful last two days for us during our Sabbatical before we take the bus across the next mountain range to go to Ibagué, Isa's home town and be with her parents!Read more
