there were 2 choices when arriving in town, go to the hip hostel with all the cool cats or go to this hostel with nobody else but have air conditioning. we chose wisely, did i mention it was surface of the sun hot?
between the shot above and this one a hell of a lot of shit went on. we partied for the most part. this was early morning and this guy was so fired up when i asked if i could take his picture. loves the meat.
this is the most random picture of the trip i would say. i was laying in my bunk thing and someone had written the "ello" and the "ollk" up there. so i added letters to make it say "mellow" and "yellow" from top to bottom and i was pleased. then i realized i could add more so on the left we got matts name (cant see the M) and my initials on the right. like i said, i was pleased. it also says "amy" across the top randomly. dumb but i was not all there at the moment.
as we are cruising around this guy stops us and starts talking to us about the city. we didnt know it at the moment but he was a tourist director or some shit. anyway, he asked us if we wanted to see some emeralds because most of them in the world come from colombia so we said (everyone chime in), "fuck it, why not". now let me describe this scene for you right quick, we are carrying skateboards and cans of aguila all sweaty and crap and an armed security guard has to let us in with a key to this million dollar shop. i was scared as piss to break some shit. anyway, the woman was mad nice and showed us a bunch of dope stones and modeled this one for us. random as hell.
we headed back to hostel to get ready for night number two. it was a doooooozy!
