our hotel in Honda

 


Up early and not a very good night sleep I checked emails and some work on the blog, packed up my stuff took down the tent and took to our truck, the truck looked a little low on the right side, we had a flat tire, so got our driver and helped get it changed the a easy tasks as these tire are large, some breakfast, load up the truck and we are off again only about a 1/2 hour late from time for leaving. We drive to the town of Zipaquira for lunch and a tour of the underground salt cathedral, it is part of a old salt mine, it started as a place the miner could come a pray while working in the mine. Now it is a very big place with lots of people visiting it. Was nice wander through it, and the lower part is still a working salt mine. Then back on our truck to the town of Hondo where we spent the night in hotel. Another of our group has a birthday Sarah so we go out to a local sports bar to celebrate it was a nice party playing pool and a game of tossing stone at a clay target with explosive charges on it called tejo. It was a late night for most of the people I left earlier back to the hotel and bed. I found out the next morning Terry one our group had his camera stolen while going back to the hotel.
