8 April 2019 – the beginning of the second week of my workaway in Barbosa, Colombia

I've finally finished work today - it was pretty chilled to be honest because Chad (my boss) wasn't here so I got to do things at my own pace (normally we're up by around 6-6.30pm but I was allowed to wake up whenever I wanted). Apart from the lights around the gazebo and moving the stuff [...]
