Mocoa to San Agustin Archeological Park

We rode two different vans today. The first one took us from Mocoa to Pitalito. The second one took us to San Agustin and then to our hotel in San Agustin Archaeological Park. In the second van I was squished in the middle in back but at least all the roads were paved and the rides weren’t too long.

Our hotel, Hostal Huaka – Yo is in a beautiful setting and we have a big comfortable room.

Before it got dark we went out for a walk on some of the back roads and saw lots of chickens,


And beautiful flowers.

We ate dinner at the hotel. It was the best meal we have had since Quito. Duke’s Fried plantains were especially tasty. The chicken and beef were wonderful too. We are the only ones staying here tonight and we were the only ones in the restaurant.

San Augustine Archaeological Park has The largest group of religious monuments and megalithic sculptures in South America. Duke has great memories of being here almost forty years ago before it was a UNESCO world heritage site. Tomorrow we explore.
