A night out in Salento, Colombia

Salento main square, Colombia
After a lovely day spent hiking the amazing Cocora Valley, we came back in Salento just before sunset. Jeeps left us the same place where we took them: Plaza Bolivar, the town’s main square, that was now full of life & covered in golden light!
