Welcome in South America, welcome in Colombia, welcome in the Andes!
Not only a new country in our trip but also a complete new continent to discover. A continent both of us never bin in before.
We feel exited when our plane coming from Panama hits the ground.
The plan is to follow parts of the Pan American Highway south. We don't like the bigger busy roads so probably we will end up on smaller dirt roads going in the same direction as the PanAm.
Because Maud is coming to visit us in a few weeks we're in a bit of a hurry and rush through our first country of South America.
As soon we arrive in Colombia we discover the government sadly does not trade the indigenous people the same as the rest of the Colombians. The country has problems with this, with the result that the indigenous population is currently blocking major through roads. Roads we also have to take to arrive on time in Ecuador where Maud also arrives, coming from the Netherlands.
We follow the little news we can find online about this issue to see how things are going from day by day. We hope to find out where the road blocks are located exactly.
Extra problem; Kim feels really bad and stays in bed for a few days a few times, which does not really promote the passage through Colombia.
Thanks for reading again. We hope you enjoyed it. There is more to come...
Cheers for now!
