Colombia is wonderful, and I kind of want to stay forever. Everyone is very welcoming of this gringa and her lousy Spanish, but I'm trying. Ibagué, the capital of Tolima, is lovely. The “Music Capital of Colombia” is a beautiful old city with beautiful and colorful buildings surrounded by mountainsous landscapes. To the left is the view from where I sit while writing this post. (I took this picture as I went to my hotel terrace so I could include it in this post.
After lunch today, we went to the Plazoleta de los artesano where there are about 15 local artisans selling their goods. It was nice to walk around and see some of the cultural craft items for sale.
