In January 2010 I visited Manizales, Colombia. This city is located near the volcano region of Colombia and just near the heart of the coffee triangle. This town in full of hills and winding roads with some amazing views of the mountain range. The cathedral in the middle of the town has the 5th tallest steeple in the world. My friend, Nicolas, and I took a guided tour to the top of the cathedral in order to get some amazing views from up top. Here is a collection of photos that I took while on our tour. After the tour we went over to the western edge of the city to see the observatory tower and to get a glimpse of the mountains while the sun was setting. To top off our day, on our way back to the hostel we happened to catch the end of a parade they were doing in the city with some cowboys!
So a few days ago I posted a few photos from Lima. I was only in Lima for one day as I was passing through on my way down to Nasca, Peru to meet some friends. However, I was able to capture a few photos that afternoon when I went out. During these few hours I walked around the Plaza Mayor area in the city only to find out that I was being followed by a local in which I had to lose him by cutting through some stores! Oh the fun in traveling!! 🙂
In March 2010 I travled to the Northern coast of Colombia for 5 days in order to visit the beautiful city of Cartagena. Everyone always talks about the city and all its beauty so I decided I had to see it for myself. Here is a collection of some of the photos I took while I was there. I still have not posted all the photos from the city so there will be more to come!
