Before we crossed over to Ecuador, we made a stop in the town of Popayán. The white city walls, colonial architecture, and gastronomy draw made Popayán a great last stop in Colombia.
We took the long route to the top of El Morro de Tulcan (an Indian pyramid). We didn’t see the stairs so we climbed up and it was not a good idea to do it with sandals. Luckily, we made it to the top and it was a great view of downtown. The spot was also a popular location for young couples that were not shy about public affection.
It got dark very fast and the evening sunset colors exaggerated the white walls. There were lots of students hanging in the streets. While we were standing in Parque de Caldas, admiring the Clock Tower, it started to pour. We quickly headed to a nearby restaurant that looked nice. It was a romantic dinner among candlelight and the food was very tasty. While it would have been nice to celebrate with my family and friends, I still had a great birthday.
Thank you Boris!
