Bogota part 4

DSC01234

On Saturday morning Salvador’s offensive against Girag began with calls starting at 730 am. We finally got a person on the line after 15 calls at 915. They told us there were 3 motos on the plane, but could not tell us if they were our bikes and the Mexican couple or the three Honduran bikes. AGHHHH. They cannot tell us which bikes the Girag in Panama sent on the Girag plane to Girag in Bogota until the plane arrives and they look at the manifest.

Luckily we had plans for the day, which included a drive to the countryside and 4×4 rock crawling with Salvador’s ORV club. The TMK stayed with Salvador and we hitched a ride with Jamie….issues to follow. Now for some good clean family fun!

The views from here were spectacular. There is a reason Jamie’s truck did not make it to the top of the hill after we hit a big rock. These about 3 foot tall shrubs are Espeletia or Fraylejon are found in Colombia, Venezuela, and Ecuador at higher altitudes and take about 200 years to grow that tall.

On the way home we stopped at a finca for some Strawberries and cream and founds some friends there. At 4 pm we called back to Girag and found out that Si the bikes of Senior Pedersen are on the plane. We are told to be there at 5 pm and that for sure we could get them tonight……
