Picture of Salento.

Aiana and I traveled together north to Armenia, then to Salento, a small town in the heart of Colombia's coffee country. The climate is so perfect in for growing coffee beans in this region that half of Colombia's famous coffee comes from just one percent of its land. The town was more touristy than I expected with handicraft shops everywhere, but the people there were so nice that I still greatly enjoyed it. The only problem was that everyone seemed to drink at least ten cups of coffee per day. They were so jittery I usually couldn't keep up with what they were saying. But my philosophy was, "If you can't beat 'em, join 'em."
