19 Jun Buenas Noches to Colombia
2. Gringo night – A night out in Bogota for Gringo’s (Foreigners) was one to remember. It’s a place where language exchange (Colombians practice languages with foreigners and vice versa) happens first then it turns into a bar and everyone parties. Interestingly it’s full of lots of Colombian girls wanting to meet foreign guys. Think of Shakira and times that by 10… Nothing to complain about here.
1. Flight ticket problem – I take a taxi to the airport, being an internal flight I leave it quiet late on to check-in. I get to the airport and cannot find my flight…? Thinking have I purchased a fake ticket or something..? I ask at the desk and they tell me it’s at another terminal about 15 minutes away and take the shuttle there. The slow shuttle took me 30 minutes, I had 5 minutes to check in. But.. there seems to be a problem at check in. supposedly I hadn’t paid for my flight and now it’s toio late to pay for it and check in so I must go and find another flight. Lucky for me another one was departing a few hours later at a cheaper price! Count myself lucky there.
3. Nightlife – Colombian nightlife consists of dancing and drinking the night away. Everyone in the clubs are so friendly and I even got a few free salsa steps from some locals.
2. Club with Colombian friends – A guy I met on a bus journey had some friends of friends in Medellin and invited me out to go party with them. Such a fantastic time with this bunch of Colombians, they were all soo friendly and again teaching me some salsa moves. Everyone in the club would just dance with everyone and just all having a good time.
