Colombia. The quality of the roads makes a 120km distance trip a 3 hour journey of avoiding potholes, motorcycles and mad drivers.
We made it to the fishing pond at around 7am for it to be closed for the day. Great. No fishing today. Me being a rookie I did not mind too much. I'll have to wait for an other first time fly fishing experience. Instead of getting the rods out we visited an old house, went up the hills for good views and continued to go to Pedro's privately owned BMX supercross facility.
The BMX complex is something else. The track was the first BMX Supercross track with an 8 meter and 5 meter hill in Colombia. The year was 2014 when Pedro's cousin decided to build a full on BMX track on the property with grandstands from a former bull fight arena, staging segments and even accomodation for people to stay. Over the years BMX has gotten more fine tuned and the current surfce is usually as flat and smooth as possible. The Pentamonte track sure has potential but the surface can use some love. It was nice to see the place and enthusiasm people have for BMX.
After a little beer run and poncho shopping for the upcoming B-day of Guido, we drove back to Bogota before evening traffic would hit. The city is full of graffiti making the trip back to the hotel an enjoyable one. Getting up at 04:00am hit me and an early night followed. No fishing was done but it was an interesting day anyway thanks to Pedro.
