Nobsa, Paipa and Villa de Leyva
It's holiday time! Maria is not crazy about the hot climates, so we went north of Bogota and stayed on the high sabana to some places she hadn't seen. The 1st week of Easter we took a 4 hour bus ride to visit a friend of Maria's who she hadn't seen for 12 years! Cecilia has been running all her life and has a house full of trophies and medals just like Maria. Now that they are past their prime, they chatted to no end about their old glory days. Then it was off to Paipa for 3 days in the hot springs and the last 2 days in Villa de Leyva, an old colonial town that has been taken over by tourism. Ramon found it quite tricky to negotiate the cobblestone streets and eventually learned that it was better to walk instead of run.....resulting in fewer cuts and bruises.
Hanging with Carla at the hot springs....had the place to ourselves....very peaceful.
Well hello there....and what planet do you come from?
Cecilia the runner's house....we couldn't miss this house!
Yet another girlfriend for Ramon.....Diana
Picture papa! I think he's got the hang of it!
Our hotel in Villa de Leyva.....non-heated pool....cool but not cold.
Our tour guide pointing out all the fossils.
All zonked out from all that fun.......on the way home.
