Silent Streets, Sweet Serenity
It's when you leave the paved road that you discover true life. A simple 30-minute bus ride outside of San Gil will land you in a sort of paradise. Silence. There are no horns honking, no people shouting, no cars murr-ing by every 2 seconds.. the streets are practically silent. A cobblestone street awaits you along with many walls with old stories behind them. The best thing to do in this town is to allow yourself to get lost, wander, breathe, question.. question the silence, where are the people, what do they do.. question why you're here, what is Colombia going to teach you, what can you learn from the people. That is all that needs to be said about Barichara, it was wonderful!
