Day 139 - Pasto

COLOMBIA | Tuesday, 28 October 2014 | Views [220]

Woke up from a not very restful bus slumber at 6.30am and sat quietly staring out at the mountains and trying not to think about when I would finally arrive in Pasto. The wifi dropped in and out on the bus which was a great distraction when it worked and I got some life administration done. 

I eventually arrived in Pasto around 3pm. Checked in at this random hostel (Koala Inn). It was super cheap, totally deserted and had a private room with a TV to myself for less than $20,000 pesos. Considering I had been paying $25,000 for 10 bed dorm rooms, this was pretty sweet.

I spent the afternoon wandering around town checking out a few of the old cathedrals and public buildings but felt super average and retreated early back to the hostel to lay down. Pasto is a surprisingly big, picturesque town nestled into the mountains with lots of cafes and a seemingly bustling small CBD. Not a bad place to stop really, just a shame I didn’t feel much like enjoying it 

As far as exciting nights go, I ate some yoghurt and fruit for dinner in my room, watched CNN live and crashed out, making the most of a double bed and not having to share a room with anyone!
