Trip to USA, restaurant awards, Salento & Hostels
Our October 2015 Newsletter
Well, our writing was a little light in September. Our trip to the USA cut into things some - ok, well a whole lot. Anyway it gave us a chance to see the differences between the two countries. Michael got to check up on relatives including a couple new grandchildren.
Oh yes, we broke another record in September for readers signing up for this newsletter. Gracias to all of you.
Before getting into what we did manage to write in September, let's again check out what others have to say about Colombia.
The small town of Salento, Colombia seems is becoming quite popular. In last month's newsletter we told readers of an article about it written by New Zealander, Jon Algie. This month one of our favorite bloggers, Sarah Duncan, takes readers on her bike trip in the area, in her usual folksy descriptive writing style.
As long as we are on Ms. Duncan, she has come up with another great writing. We are pleased to let her handle those things for the younger crowd as we are retired and no longer do the hostel thing. Duncan's blog about Hostels in Colombia covers ones in Bogotá, Salento, Manizales, Medellin, Cartagena and Santa Marta.
