Next thing you know, I was sitting shotgun in their car with a free ride to my hostel (45 minutes away!). This was my introduction to Colombian hospitality, and I loved every bit of it. The couple and I had a great time riding through the mountains and into town where they even stopped at some dangerous turns so I could take some photos (see above). These were probably the nicest people I have ever met, and I plan on remaining friends with them for a long time to come.
Thank you Colombia for welcoming me and thank you to my new friends for taking care of me. I don't need any sleep to realize how selfless and comforting your culture is.
