Colombian Roadtrip – day 15 – Happy New Year at Laguna la Cocha

December 31, 2013

We woke up today to gorgeous lake views and decided to take a small boat to Isla La Carota, a forested island in the middle of the lake. On the island, we enjoyed a nice walk through primary forest and then took a little boat tour of the lake. We stopped at a rudimentary trout fishery and the kids really enjoyed feeding the fish. It was a pleasant morning, with the afternoon spent relaxing in the hotel, preparing for the night’s festivities.

New Year’s Eve festivities turned out to be pretty lame by Colombian standards – a little dancing as a local folk band played live. We barely stayed awake until midnight to ring in the new year and head off to get some rest. With three kids, one has to be choosy in whether the fun of staying up is worth the price of dealing with family life on little sleep. This party was definitely not worth it!
