So as of this writing, I am long past the voyage herein recounted. Regardless, recounted it should be - Colombia overall is a fresh and provocative land. Alive and fresh everywhere, what thrives and abounds in every city and throughout the countryside is a plethora of flora, fauna, water, and sun. Regionally, it's a spectacularly diverse smorgasbord of ecosystems, tribal groups, foods, landscapes, language, and music.
I began this trip spending time with family and trekking across the region from Cali to a few hours north.
May 2010 - Nirvana remains to many a word from the Far East, a vague notion of escape, or peace, tranquility, and mythology. In Colombia, it is a small community of rural landowners and small farmers nestled up against the country's Central Mountain Range - and includes the entrance and visitor center to a large regional nature reserve.
One night here, in Nirvana, provided a wonderful respite from a city renowned for its nightlife, music, and party scene. And a great launch pad for further journey's into the heritage of Colombia.
