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.

In this big cosmopolitan city, we will meet with Carolina and Pablo, a colombian couple of climbers we met in Marseille 2 years ago. After studying in Italy for some years, and traveling a bit through Europe, they recently came back home, where they welcome us with open arms.

Colombians are proud of their coffee, which they think is the best in the world. The area where it is produced, recognized as world heritage, is in between the central and western cordilleras. The landscapes are very pretty, with green hills, and as background the high summits of los Nevados volcanoes. No wonder there are many tourists in this area!
