The streets were like those of museums; amazing art work covered the once decaying walls and illuminated the once scarce alley ways.
The smiles from the locals were infectious, the love poured from their hearts.
This can not be the former ‘worlds most dangerous city’ the guide books claimed it was.

However, out of date rumours have yet to be cleared up in the First World Countries whose residents, that have never visited, seem convinced if you go to Colombia you may never return. So firstly let's be frank and honest: why was Colombia once the world’s most violent country? The demand for drugs became so high that Colombia got caught up in conflict between other countries and ‘Guerilla’ gangs internally, which attracted the US, that they started the ‘War on Drugs’ in Colombia which continues to this day.
In fact you're more likely to be eaten by a shark in Australia than you are to be kidnapped in Colombia’s capital city of Bogota. I want to help spread the word and shake off the ‘danger’ tag associated with Colombia and replace it with the love that I have experienced first hand. Everything else steamed from there, including the kidnapping, murders and corruption.
I don’t want to get too wrapped up in facts, so hit up Wikipedia to find out more, I’m here to tell you why its all turned itself round.

I had to find the Colombian gold and Solento was the place.The landscape was so unexpected, I didn’t imagine Colombia to have this much beauty.Without sounding cliché there lay fresh mountain waterfalls and cascading luminous green hills at every turn, it was breathtaking, but the unexpected kind, the kind you weren’t programmed to feel.No city has taken my soul like Bogota did and I feel like I have friends for life there.The only downside to the city however was the weather.The hostels in Solento (and now I realise the whole of Colombia) were of the best standard of the whole of South America.
