The day started out great. Road construction, or so it seemed because the road was muddy and it was like the start of a motorcycle race, free for all to the first corner but with a twist, there was traffic coming the other way. LOL Unbelievable organized chaos at its best!!
The road into Pasto, the last 60km to be exact, was some of the best to date. Extreme twisty roads, with views of the valley, mountains and steep drop offs that left you breathless, but you dare not take your eyes off the road too long, as the next curve was seconds away!!! Incredible.
A day on the Colombian roads .... no chicken stripes!!
Still working on the front ones.
Rolled into Pasto where we received the warmest reception to date! A young fellow by the name of Oscar led us to a great hotel, The Loft. We parked on the sidewalk out front and drew a crowd of literally dozens of people. They gathered around our bike asking where we came from, where we were going, etc. More people stopped to take a look at the bikes and moved on. These were not just youngsters and motorcycle enthusiasts, but they were people from all walks of life, from young to old, from street people to shirt and tie. Felt a little embarrassed by it all to be honest, as it felt like they were treating us like celebrities.
Tomorrow we should be getting into Ecuador.
