- walking all around the colonial city of Popayán in the south of the country, with its streets lined with all-white buildings;
- horse-riding in the countryside around San Agustin to several statue-filled sites;
- salsa dancing in Cali, where myself and Ciarán again met up with Elaine and her friends;
- trekking for five days with Ciarán and Elaine through rivers and mud to the "Lost City of Tayrona".
Me and my Salomon runners have done a lot of fun stuff over the last 15 months, and I expect their replacements (which I plan to buy in New York in December) will serve me just as well!
