Many of my weekends and vacation days have been spent going on adventures with my friend Lisa in the nearby town of Floridablanca. It’s a short bus ride away and has access to hiking in the mountains. On our first trip to Florida we were delighted to meet this talking parrot which was hanging out in someone’s yard!
Our first destination in Florida was the botanic gardens.
After exploring the gardens we headed to the park in the center of town where there was a large celebration happening for Día del Niño. We grabbed an oblea to eat and watched a charming puppet show about recycling and saving the planet!
The following day Lisar and I headed to the same park in Florida to meet our friend Sergio for a hike. We ended up at a beautiful waterfall and couldn’t resist jumping in, despite the fact that we hadn’t brought swimsuits with us. We dried off quickly in this warm Colombian weather!
We had a holiday on May 1st for Labor Day and I went hiking to another waterfall with some friends. All of these pictures were taken by my friend Carlita who just moved to Bucaramanga from Argentina.
