Cali Colombia

Arrived late from a very long 11 hour bus ride from Ibague, that went over the beautiful Andes mountain range.
On arriving at the bus station, we jumped in to a taxi, to take us to meet with my friends parents. As I jumped in the taxi I deleted the address on my iPhone touch screen!!! Had to find a internet cafe, but could not find the info stored on my Skype account, so my friend Marvin called his brother in Bogota, as I had been using his girlfriends laptop. I gave him my password and he went though the history till he found the address. We arrive at my friends parents home just before midnight.
