Photo of the day: Bulldozer crossing

Thursday, August 16, 2012


I had to share this photo more for comedic value than for compositional beauty or greatness.  We stayed at a gorgeous coffee plantation in Colombia’s Zona Cafeteria, and decided to take a walk on the grounds.  In order to get anywhere we had to cross a river which was deceptively deep and fast-running.  One way, we decided to forge through it, but on the return we came across this manned bulldozer moving dirt around near the river.  He offered to drive us the few meters across the water, which was awesome for so many reasons, not least of which that we got to add “bulldozer” to our list of methods of transport taken on the world trip.

What this picture doesn’t tell you is how beautiful this area of Colombia is, and how delicious the coffee tastes, and how crazy our accommodations were that night (guesthouse + pool + all the coffee we could drink, all to ourselves, no staff or anyone?!).  Tales for another post!
