Southern Colombia

We travelled south from Salento, out first stop was Cali, Colombia’s largest city. It is huge but we managed to walk around the old town, it had some beautiful churches (only on the outside) and it even boasted glittery bollards in the city centre!

Our next stop was Popayan, a small colonial town, with predominantly white pretty buildings but with terrible traffic, we were glad to only be staying a couple of days!

Our final stop in Colombia was Ipiales, a typical border town, kind of grotty! However there was the very cool Las Lajas Santuary close by, a gothic style church built on a bridge inside a canyon. We waved goodbye to Colombia, our next stop Quito!
