Another quiet morning. Andres woke early again, but after a feed he went back to sleep until after 8am.
Being Sunday, they didn’t put on lunch at the hotel so Enrique (the owner of the hotel) arranged to have some Chinese delivered for lunch which we ate out on the front porch – it was nice.
Enrique took some of the other families with older kids (ie not just babies) to a swimming pool for lunch and to spend the afternoon – and also arranged to have a driver take us out to a transportation museum near the airport. As it turned out, with sleeping babies and everything, it was just the guys who went on this trip (one Canadian and two Australians). The museum had a rather eclectic mix of items including planes, helicopters, trains, cars (including an old Ford Falcon!), motorbikes, petrol pumps, and even some prams!
The highlight was the enormous model train layout they had built, it must have had several hundred metres of track all up, in a complex layout that wound around a room. The attention to detail in the layout was incredible, not just trains and towns, but ports with ships and factories and more.
Upstairs was a huge collection of models from a local model making/collecting club – cars, planes, tanks, boats and more.
It wasn’t a long visit, but it did help to break up the monotony of waiting around the hotel with not much to do. Driving around Cali is potentially far more interesting anyway – always fascinating to see the various aspects of life in Colombia.
