Highlights: Lost or stolen wallet, farewell dinner
Today was one of those days you remember for the wrong reasons. While leaving Medellín sometime between exiting our private bus and checking in my bag for the 9.53 am flight to Cartagena my wallet went missing.

This was the second of two flights included with the G Adventures Classic Colombia tour. This was a short flight schedule for 1 hour 3 minutes it turned out to be even less.

Highlights: Replica town Peñol de Guatapé, Rock of Guatapé, Guatapé zocalos, tuk-tuk ride.
Today was a full free day from the tour so the group split and did there own thing. Seven of us selected a day tour to Guatapé which our tour leader Miguel organised and joined us (cost 110,000 pesos). It was to be a day of amazing colours, fitness tests and great street art work.
