Distances in Colombia between cities are long and roads are difficult. It’s not possible to drive fast. So, there’s a
lot of little hotels all long. Rooms, most concentrated near a petrol station and a restaurant, offer air-conditioning and showers to all professional and transit drivers. Desert during the day
except for quick lunch, parking area start to fill in with sunset. A little night stop to rest and an early departure. Last trucks stop about eleven pm and leave with the first light of the day.
Often, it’s an entire family who manage motels. The day to clean rooms, children in the middle, the night to take care of trucks drivers. A life all around road and drivers rhythm. The Wipama
hotel is one of those, on the road 45 who cross by the east, from north Caribbean coast to south frontier with Ecuador. A night experience.
