Food is something that brings the world together. Each culture has its own traditions and favorite foods. As a self proclaimed foodie, I was so excited to try cuisines in the countries they originated in. During my travels, I have discovered and will undoubtedly continue to discover culinary treasures around the globe. I am honored to share with you, My Elephant Tribe, the amazing meals I have enjoyed throughout the world.
Day 59: Colombia
Eggs and Bunuelos, take two! We found a little cafe around the corner. So, why not go back. Brian is feeling better this morning. We are ready for an amazing and strenuous adventure.
Our adventure started with a 2 hour Uber ride to Piedra del Peñol. There are 760 steps to get to the top of this gigantic rock. I knew I would make it to the top, but I thought it would take forever and would quite possibly be the hardest thing I have ever done. While it was one of the hardest things I have ever done. Making it to the top was the most exhilarating experience of my life. I was able to feel true euphoria for the first time in my life. I don't really know how to explain that feeling. The sense that I accomplished something that I didn’t know I would be able to, was truly a gift that I am grateful for and cannot wait to experience again.
After our descent, we grabbed a Tuc-Tuc to take us to Guatape, a traditional Colombian village. I loved the brightly colored buildings and the narrow streets. The square was lively and it the vibe of the small town was incredible. It was so small we were able to walk up and down the streets in about 15 minutes. Afterwards, we went to get some food on the water, followed by ice cream in the square.
When we were ready to go we got on the bus for our 2 hour ride back to the city.
Today was exhausting, but it was also one of the greatest days of my life.
