Gladney Teen Service Trip in Colombia - Day 5

We had a fun day today seeing more of Bogotá. Started off with a great trip for mountain climbing or biking. Super fun!

Beth Whitacre and I both conquered a Colombian mountain face.

Then we had a quick lunch and it was back on the bus to the Salt Cathedral. Very beautiful and a marvel. We even had an added treat of getting to see the two Gladney families currently in Colombia taking placement of their children through Gladney's Colombia Adoption Program. It was wonderful getting to visit with them and meet their kids. 

Part of the tour we actually got to mine for salt.  Hard work!  I would not have been a successful miner. After the salt cathedral we headed back to the hotel for dinner. The traditional Colombian soup is GREAT! 

Now it is off to bed, we are leaving for the airport at 6 am. See ya Monday :-)
