The overnight bus

The overnight bus from Huila to Tolima was typical of Colombian bus travel at night in that you sleep between the stops, open your eyes to see where you are and guage how much more sleep you can get until the next stop. Remember though you are in Colombia so any travel plans by bus or car can be interrupted by virtually anything from rocks and mud in the roads, to construction, strikes, parades or in my case a bicycle race just outside the city of Ibague.


It is just best to go with the flow and have fun with it. Before all was said and done people from our bus were cheering along the racers, myself included.
