We came, we saw, we left!

After 2 nights in the desert we were all more than ready to move on and get back to somewhere with water that you didn't need to drink out of a bag!

The only trucks leaving Cabo for the desert drive back to the nearest town (which is 2 hours away) leave at 4am, meaning we had to endure the crazy bumpy truck drive at a stupid hour and all half asleep!

We headed for the capital of La Guajira, Riohacha, where we spent the day wandering around town before catching a 16 hour overnight bus to Medellin to get back into civilisation - and a shower!

As usual, the bus ended up taking about 4 hours longer than planned but we eventually arrived safely in Medellin over 30 hours after we had left Cabo.
