The Wall


CHICAMOCHA, originally uploaded by laloking97.

This "stone wall" is part of the way from Bucaramanga to San Gil in the Chicamocha Canyon (Remember PANACHI). I have gone through this road many times but always I am surprised because this road was made since more than 80 years (more or less) without the big toys that an engineer has today. I remember my grandpa's story about his travels to San Gil in the early 30s. He told me that they had to go by foot by the old paths from the colonial age ("Caminos de Herradura"), It had to be a great journey.

Esta pared de piedra es parte de la carretera que va de Bucaramanga a San Gil en el Cañon del Chicamocha (recuerdan PANACHI?) y he pasado una gran cantidad de veces por aqui y continuo sorprendiendome una y otra vez porque esta carretera fue hecha hace mas de 80 años (mas o menos) sin los grandes jugetes con que cuenta un Ingeniero hoy. Recuerdo las historias de mi abuelo acerca de sus viajes a San Gil en los 30. Me contaba que tenian que irse a pie por los antiguos Caminos de Herradura de la epoca colonial. Tuvo que ser un gran viaje.
