Colombia - In November I was in Filandia, Salento and the coffee region around Armenia. I spent 3 nights at Decameron Panaca which was awesome. Afterwards I spent 10 days in Bogota where I went graffiti art and mural hunting and enjoyed the city a lot! After that I spent 5 days in the hot north in Valledupar. I have spent the past several years living in Taganga on Colombia's north coast. During this time I have done many backpacking trips to other countries in South America!
