Think you know what a chicken bus is like? Think again. This particular chicken rode in comfort and style, his owner pampering, petting and feeding him as we traveled along. I never saw anyone give so much loving attention to a chicken. What a lucky chicken!

Colombian Police are Polite and Protective

My recent experience with Colombian police in Popayán left me quite impressed. They’re helpful and polite, and yet still always alert and protective. I’m always happy to see them around. And it seems like the Colombians really like them too.

Be sure to include Cali Colombia in your list of cities to visit when you’re in Colombia. My personal experience is that it’s safe, beautiful and fun. Especially at Christmas time when it’s all dressed up in lights. A delightful mix of old and new. And economical too.
