From the Jungle to the Andes

You know where you are?
You're in the JUNGLE baby!!!!

We left Baños and headed to a sleepy town called Misahuallí. It was very tranquil after the holiday festivities in Baños.

Mark played beach soccer in the sand with the locals. One side of the field was the luscious tree line and the other side was the lazy river.

Thanksgiving through New Year 2010

We celebrated Thanksgiving in San Gil, Colombia at our favorite vegetarian restaurant (no turkey that night folks). It was wonderful to share a delicious meal and reminisce about our amazing family and friends and this trip that we have been on for almost almost 9 months.

Enjoying Colombia as much as we did, we decided that it was time to GET OUT before it was too late because.... "the only risk in coming to Colombia is wanting to stay!" One night over dinner in San Gil, we reviewed our goals and how much more time we had with our trip, and with that (after a month of living in the area), we decided to leave the next morning.

We headed straight for Bogotá, skipping some very interesting parts of the country.....kicking ourselves along the way.
