The Locksmith – From Villa de Leyva to Duitama

Our subsequent cease could be Villa de Leyva.
We go away from the north terminal and discover a bus for 18,000 pesos every.

If you arrive you understand that it’s a place for vacationers, not solely foreigners, it is usually a nucleus of inside tourism so costs right here multiply. It took us no less than two hours to discover a place that was inside our finances and the reality is that we didn’t complain, it was a cushty room in a clear and quiet hostel for 30,000 pesos a room per evening. You’ll forgive me, the time has handed and I can’t bear in mind the title.

We loved a few walks and toured the little place. The reality is that it seems good and is in excellent situation, you may see that the few who can stay there preserve it and maintain it because it deserves. We don’t keep too lengthy, it’s a place to not be missed however the place you can’t stagnate both. We left for our subsequent vacation spot, which appeared out of nowhere and due to future …

Whereas we had been in Bogotá, a few mates: Flor Alba and Claudio, provided us the keys to their condo in Duitama, so we modified our steps a bit to have the ability to go and relaxation there.

 

My childhood could be shut by and I wasn’t positive I needed to spend an evening on the epicenter of so many reminiscences, so I accepted his delighted invitation. We took a bus from Villa de Leyva to DuitamaWe arrived at evening and located the place with out a lot issue. The issue got here after we needed to open the door of the condo since after a thousand makes an attempt we concluded that the important thing we had was not the one which opened the door we wanted. I managed to speak with them by telephone although it was slightly late (stunning them) and it turned out that, certainly, we had the fallacious keys in our palms… Nicely, no less than we had been indoors, that was good for me.

Flor Alba took the difficulty to name the locksmith, one Sunday at eight pm…. Whereas we had been ready on the door, sitting and speaking, a boy arrived in a leather-based jacket, lengthy and considerably matted hair, who neither quick nor lazy ready to enter. We had been checkered at first, then we realized that it was the locksmith who had arrived a lot sooner than we anticipated.

The man appeared calm, together with his gradual voice he defined to us how he opened the door whereas we checked out him in amazement and laughed at his methods, which, in spite of everything, turned out to be extra rustic and helpful than we anticipated.

He and Jesper hit it off and communicated indirectly that I do not know but. The boy invited us to have a beer and I, the reality, was not very a lot for the work … The blond as an alternative accepted the invitation the primary time and in a match of irresponsibility (mine and his) went with him with out hesitation.

After two hours I had no information of him after which I started to fret, till that second the truth that with nice luck he was in a position to talk or that I didn’t understand how again house didn’t even cross my thoughts … After I remembered these little particulars I went right into a full-scale panic and the one factor that occurred to me was to snigger and suppose that no less than it might be straightforward to report back to the police a German of 1.90 misplaced in the midst of Duitama, I made a decision to cease worrying and never be paranoid, finally And in spite of everything, the locksmith appeared like a pleasant man.

After one other two hours the blond arrived, alone and TOTALLY drunk. Come on, I am stunned he might say his title if somebody requested him. I could not speak to him that day, the drunkenness left him in mattress and loud night breathing in lower than two minutes.

Not solely did he arrive secure and sound, however a couple of days later he laughed at his journey with the locksmith, who after exhibiting him his neighborhood, his home and his mates on the bar (and a bottle of brandy) adopted him from a distance whereas He was yelling at him the correct strategy to get again house … fairly a personality.

The locksmith.
We do not even bear in mind his title.
