San Augustin Day 4

Walked from Hostel to the Archaeological Park with religious monuments and megalithic sculptures (100+). Afternoon invited a young English fellow for beer and dinner, he has been for almost a year in South America and is living on very little money. Good evening with music and drinks at the hostel.
Next day toke a full day trip by Jeep around the area visiting more tombs and stone figures, water fall and scenery. Stayed the evening at the Hostel and had dinner with others. Packing for the bus trip to Pasto.

Check out on the web San Augustine .
The largest group of religious monuments and megalithic sculptures in South America stands in a wild, spectacular landscape. Gods and mythical animals are skilfully represented in styles ranging from abstract to realist. These works of art display the creativity and imagination of a northern Andean culture that flourished from the 1st to the 8th century.
