And we're back from the Lost City! Spoiler alert, we found it…

Day 1
From Santa Marta we jumped in an off road vehicle and made a 2 hour journey into the foot hills of the Sierra Nevada mountain range. A briefing with our new hike mates and a meal later we started our walk away from civilisation (although amusingly all of the camps had wifi, welcome to the future! ) with everything we needed on our backs (only about 6-7kg).

The first day was mainly through farming territory as we slowly climbed away from the dryer landscape and roads. We had a quick swim in a mountain stream and stopped occasionally for watermelon breaks. Oh, and it was hot and sticky as you might expect, also full of spiders and my favourite, mosquitos…

After a relatively short walk of about 4 hours we arrived at or first camp and went straight to the waterfall to wash off the heat of the day. After dinner everyone seemed to hit the hay and be sleeping by about 9pm. So far pretty easy walking… Next up day 2
