We went through a long stretch of sinuous road between the towns of Ibague and Armenia; few passengers threw up. You see a lot of pine and bamboo trees in that route, and coffee plantations before Armenia. At many places the road was single lane because of the construction work, and east and west bound traffic took turns in passing the site. We were told the bus journey was 10-11 hours; actually, it took 12 hours to reach Cali.
