all the way to the top of that mountain we go

Oct 18 45th day on the road got up in the morning the hotel I was staying at had free breakfast room service.  So chowed down some of the fruit an eggs I ordered and got in contact with Roscoe.  We were to meet up at 10am and head 3000 meters (aprox 9800 ft) up the mountain which we thought over looked the city of Medellin.  We take the subway to the cable cars which only cost us like 70cents.  We took the cable car majority of the way up the mountain but then had to get off the normal routine car walked over pay a extra 1.70$ to hop on the

tourist one that took us to the top.  Well once we got to the top the thing didnt stop it must of went on for another 5mins till we got to the center of the mountain where they had a like a natural reserved plant and wildlife park or something. We walked around for awhile clueless to what we just came to see cause we thought we were going to see some outlook over the city.  Drank some micro brewed beers and ate mushrooms.  Then walked to another

place and drank more beer before we finally decide eh okay lets head back down.  On our way down I asked Roscoe and his girl Fem if they would want to go see Pablo Escobar museum and grave.  They both agreed but we didnt know where it was so we head back to our hotels to get on wifi come to find out like majority of things in Colombia it closes at 4 o clock so we missed that but still could visit the grave so we decided on heading to the cemetery.  I been to some really cool

graves and let me tell you for having so much damn money his grave sure sucks ass.  After being super disappointed we left and decided to go to the center by our hotels and grab dinner and beers.  We ate some shitty ass thai food that was not thai food at all it was colombians trying there luck at thai and they failed miserably.  We drank in the park while some local was trying to feed us shot I felt bad he was drinking a lone so he fed me like 4shots of rum one after another and then we all decided to call it a night. So went back to my hotel had one last beer at my place and we said our good byes. ( Roscoe and Fem were heading back to there home of amsterdam in 2 days and tomorrow I was making my way further south)  Day 46 woke up early ate the free

room service breakfast and packed up the bike to get moving south.  I rode for 8hrs and arrived in Cali, Colombia.  On my way I past 2 bad ass sculptures so when I got checked into my hotel and on wifi I searched cali sculpture and this city is filled with them.  I went down to the front desk asked for a local map she gave me one of those tourist maps that has all the landmarks of the city.  So I hoped back on the bike and cruised around for a hour or so to check out the infamous jew

(jesus).  Some other sculptures and a random big ass white church after all that just came back to my hotel and called it a night.  Day 47 got up around 9am to move further south just outside of the border of ecuado to this town called Pasto and when I got into town my head was pounding then I realized o shit its cause of the elevation changes probably cause I was going from 4000ft to 8000ft during the whole ride. Anyways  I arrived  mid day think it was only a 6hr ride that day.  So got checked in to my hotel that only cost me 8 dollars and for 8 dollars it was really nice compared to that 18$ shit hole chinese place i stayed at in panama.  Parked the bike in there parking garage and walked around the town there.  I saw they had a pretty cool church when I was pulling in so decided to walk down that way check it out and grab some food on the walk back.  As I was walking down another adventure motorcyclist rolled by from colombia with a girl on the back.  Not sure where they were heading but waved hi even though they were probably like who is that weirdo.  Saw the church ate some food and ended up back at my hotel for the night.
