With the Panama only accessible by boat, and the current situation in Venezuela, Colombia is a bit of a dead end for overlanders right now. My first days of solo travelling will then be backtracking all the way south through Ecuador to Peru. I won't visit much on the way, but I'll drive as much as possible on different roads than on the way north 3 months ago.

With Sophie back to France, I decided to spend a few more days in the Bogota area, in order to have some work done on the car. Actualy, there is a very good garage here, specialized in restoring the old Toyota 40 series. They do some off road preparation too, and that is exactly what i was looking for.

We continue our route down from the mountains of El Cocuy national park, across some colonial cities, to the plateau where bogota sits. It is called the bogota savanna and has a rich history. The indigenous Muisca used to live here before the spanish conquest.

For once, this article is not completely chronological. As a matter of fact, here in Colombia, the colonial cities are to be found everywhere : at the foot of the mountains, in the jungle, in the desert or on the coast! Each one has its particularities, but they are all built around a shaded central square, a church and make the colombians proud!

That’s the youngest and highest mountain range of the country. Its northern end spans up to the Venezuela, on its west slopes flows the Rio Magdalena, the biggest river of Colombia, and on its east lies the Amazon basin over hundreds of kilometers up to Brazil.
