Santa Fe de Antoiquia, Colombia
The pic I have sent is of the bridge at Santa Fe de Antoiquia. I am also sending a video crossing this bridge. I am now in Popayan on the Pan American Highway. It is only a day's drive to the border with Ecuador though I have one more stop along the way.

The one that got my attention was one that this guy sits on all day with his stop and go sign, directing traffic.
