    Roasting beans on the sidewalk. Not sure if walking on them helps?

    Can't get the 360 pictures working here.

    We went to Ed's to pick up my scooter and take it to my place.

    Fantastic set of pics @Quindio, the walk around Marsella looks like it was really nice. I especially like the shot of the donkey tied to the tree outside that house.

    Both Ed's place and the artists place look incredibly tranquil, someplace where sitting on the porch and drinking coffee could happen for hours on end.

    Keep 'em coming man.

    It's 40 degrees, gray and going to rain where I am now. Plus I'm at work. In a couple weeks I'll be where you are. Photos like this are making me almost want to cry.

    Ed's place is if you want to relax and enjoy the nature that surrounds his place with no noise but the river. It's away from the town of Salento that can be noisy at times. Jorge loves being able to paint without having people drop by all the time like they did when he was living in Salento.

    Ed and Jorge have a beautiful location! Eds grounds are unbelievable, does he have a gardener or work on it himself? My spanish teacher is Colombiana and she had a saying that if in Colombia you throw away an apple today , tomorrow will be an apple tree.

    Ed has Robinson who works for him and he does most of the gardening and Ed cuts the grass. Robinson has worked for him since he bought the property and Ed has more plans to make it even nicer.

    Yesterday I had to bring the scooter for government inspection, but first I needed to get the horn fixed.

    In this part of town you can buy anything you need or anything fixed for very cheap.

    By the time we got back the scooter was fixed. They took the scooter apart found out the horn was broken, installed a new one and put it back together all for $25,000 pesos. All though I like doing things myself it's just not worth it.

    Today I need to bring the Tenere in for inspection.

    That is where I had my seat done today. I also had my helmet replaced with a new inside padding.

    It really is a bikers heaven. When he made the seat today I would sit on it trying it out until it felt just right. All hand made in a hour. $60,000 pesos.

    Made the rear of the seat a little longer so Sandra doesn't keep sliding down into the lower part of the seat. Added a little more padding towards the tank. Feels great!!

    On Monday the kids are back to school so that means time for some exploring. We are trying to go away today maybe to Jardín, Antioquia if we can getaway in time. :D
