Colombia - The only risk is wanting to stay back!

Tell us about a *random act of kindness* from your travels. 

Me: First day in Colombia... after having heard enough of "isn't it scary/risky" and refusing to believe such non-tested arguments, I found myself talking to one of the oldest men I've ever met. he was as local as local can be - came from a Guarani descent and spoke Quichua. 

Colombia es passion!
When i told him in my broken Spanish that I was here to explore his country, he was delighted to assist me in locating a shared taxi to reach my destination, the beautiful Las Lajas. He wished me a great stay and I knew already that I was in a great country with great people :)
