Let's go now with two villages from my region of origin.


ANDALUCIA
"The sweet town of Colombia"






Andalucia is located in the central region of Valle del Cauca department. This little town is called "the sweet town", with the famous "paw jelly", which is made by many families in this village.









Monument to the "paw jelly"

Commemorative plaque that says:
"Tribute to the sweetest corner of the Valle del Cauca, Andalucia, the place where the best gelatine of beef leg is made."

Yes, there are many iguanas in several parks of Colombia. Local inhabitants feed these animals and take care of them.


Very close to Andalucia, there is the next town:


BUGALAGRANDE





Bugalagrande is a little town located in the center of Valle del Cauca department. Because it is not a tourist place, Bugalagrande has always a nice and peaceful atmosphere.

The careful way to create and keep public spaces is one of most important lessons we need to learn if we want a civilized society, and these towns in Colombia could be a book to teach this lesson

Thanks for sharing with us these photographs with colombian hinterland.

Thanks for your kind comment Eduarqui

Now I want to show three towns located in the North-west of Valle del Cauca. I visited them during the last week and hope you enjoy it.

This was the route. We started in the valley and finished in the mountains.




Sugarcane crops, characteristic of this region.

Cauca River, the main one of the valley. There we can see a traditional slab, a mean of transport for crossing from one side to the other.

Vineyards and the great valley

Leaving behind the valley, the green mountains...

After climbing for an hour, you reach the first village in the area:


ARGELIA

Argelia is called "The Palace of the Mountains". Is a little town surrounded by mountains and cofee crops.


The main street and entrance to the town

The Square.

It is clear why Argelia is the "Palace of the Mountain"

This will continue...

Thanks Gratteciel, Romashka01 and El_Greco for your kind comments

Let's move on to the next town

image hosted on flickr


Further in the mountains lies one of the most pleasant villages in this region:


ALBAN





This small town is part of the Cultural Landscape Cafetero, declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 2011.




The Church







Typical architecture of the Colombian coffee region



The "Willys Jeep", the most used vehicle to transport products in the Colombian mountains.

Thanks GE and Gratteciel for your comments

EL CAIRO
The village of mist

image hosted on flickr


In Cairo - with the same name as the Egyptian capital - the road comes to an end. From then on, it follows the humid jungle of Choco and later the Pacific Ocean.

Arriving in Cairo is reaching a place almost stopped in time. Tourism is not as massive as in other regions of the country, because it perceives a coffee atmosphere with greater "authenticity".

Because we arrive almost at sunset, I will start with these afternoon-night photos in Cairo. This will continue...

Alban has lovely buildings, falp!
And I love your pic #77/1 with the colourful houses and the dog resting on the stairs!

El Cairo is a beautiful town!
The mist gives it an almost magical appearance.
