after a taxi, a bus and another taxi that ripped us off... we made it to villanueva (pop. app. 20 000) just after sunset. the trip from barranquilla cost me approximately 61 000 pesos which works out to be about $33 us. in barranquilla we went camera shopping and i found a reasonable lumix point and shoot digital camera with a leica lense for about $200 us. it does the job and is more descrete.
o... i almost forgot. villanueva is where vallenato music was born and it plays day and night in the streets on loud speakers.
villanueva didn't exist on this map... so i put it where i think it is.
