Once Phil and Lindsey had left we met our driver who was supposed to buy us tickets for the bus to Cartagena. Unfortunately he had screwed up and was saying that we needed onward tickets. However when we got to the bus station we managed to bluff our way through and picked up our tickets. We then boarded our bus (which was in pretty good condition) and had an 19 hour bus journey, of which unfortunately Monica spent a lot of in the toilet (all Phil and Lindseys fault !!!)
The boarder crossing into Columbia was one of the easiest we have had. The young lad checked our passports, asked where we were going, and then just said, ok I'll give you 60 days !!!
