Los Monjes

The “los Monjes” archipelago off the Colombian coast looks like some rocks from the moon fallen into the Atlantic… There’s only a small military station on these tiny, white rocks, which offer no protection from the howling wind and no anchorage. We have tied to a line that is spanned across an artificial bay. 4 people from the coast guard welcomed us to the station and insisted that we should pick somebody for a “safety inspection”. The polite, young official then invited us to take a walk around the rock and to visit the station, which we’ll do now. A small step for mankind, a big step (up onto the concrete dock) for us! After a rather calm and very quick passage to this spot we’ll wait here until tomorrow, when the wind is supposed to be lighter around the cape as well.
