Trip to Pasto,Colombia: Cafe de la Baca, Garden cemetery in Tulcán. Ecuador. July 2016.

My neighbor, her daughter and co-worker planned trip to Pasto, Colombia since January. The trip was to do some sightseeing and to shop in Colombia. The Revolución Ciudadana going on in Ecuador, turned out to be super expensive and merchandise in E stores cost more than in neighboring countries, more than in US, due to high tariffs and countless taxes.
So, my neighbor decided to combine pleasure with business in Colombia and offered me to join them. Off we went on some Thursday in July. After almost two hours of driving we stopped at Cafe de la baca,  it's not just restaurant, it's a destination worth visiting.
