Bucaramanga Birding

I caught the all night bus from Santa Marta last night. I surprised myself by sleeping most of the way, but I was not comfortable. I got into Bucaramanga at 5:30am and had an omelette and a cup of hot chocolate. I still have not had a decent cup of coffee today. No wonder I feel so tired. Anyhoo, after brekky I found a bus, hopped off, caught another one to Bosconia and found my hostel. It is a nice spot by the Surata River.

After unpacking the camera, I went for a walk up the road and found a few new birds.
