We left Medellin in a full sprint to get to Quito before our plane leaves in a few days. But despite our rush, we couldn’t pass up Salento and the Valle De Corcora.
Six hours south of Medellin we arrived in the sleepy town of Salento. It was a couple hours off route, but we quickly decided it was worth it after scoping the scenery.
Now we’re back on the road heading south. Over the next two days we’ll be driving through the areas where the FARC have been launching attacks. (Read the FARC Attack post here).
We’re feeling pretty good about the drive. The special forces have been down there for over a week now so we’re hoping the main Pan American Highway is secure.
Plus, as I keep telling Stevie, if they get us we can always use Kiki as a bargaining chip. She’d be worth a lot on the black market.
Wish us luck! TREE
