Cali didn’t quite seem the place to be. A giant terminal from which I could look over a foggy modern city. Walked around a bit, found out the ATM didn’t work and decided to go to Manizales, the capital of the central coffee growing region. A good cup of coffee is what I neee. That busride takes only about seven hours, and when I get off, I feel like seeing something of this city. It turned out to be a good choice.
It’s nice here in Manizales. I eat in a local restaurant where a man is reading Isabel Allende and then climb the tall Cathedral. The guide is experienced. He does this tour all day long, six days a week. The view from the tower is fascinating. We see a town covered by thick foggy clouds. Still, I don’t want to spend the night here.
I make it to Mendellin very late that night. In the bus terminal they sell good ice-cream all night long and what does a man want more?
Kamiel’s Daily Karma Rule: “Be your own toughest critic”.
Being extremely self-critical is a bitter but very efficient vaccination against the fear of criticism. It can make you almost immune from it.
