Paul and I created a route which brought us to Riohacha, Colombia on a Saturday for a stopover prior to the border crossing into Venezuela. The picture above is of what locals do on a Saturday night, and that is buy beer sold by vendors on the main street which includes a plastic chair to sit on and people watch.

Once again the people of the countries I have crossed have been more than helpful. In Riohacha we were having trouble finding a hotel for the night so we decided to ask some local police for help. They not only told us where to go but gave us a police escort to the hotel with police lights flashing. This has happened numerous times in various countries where the local police or military are more than happy to assist.

I love the signs on the highway that you just do not see back home. This one showed up consistantly on our ride through Colombia warning of Anteaters crossing.
