After lunch we walked on a winding, hilly, muddy trail back to our posada and had a couple hours of down-time while we waited for a guy to come and talk to us. He is a former guerillo from the civil war here. Eduardo Cruz Cruz told us his life story. It was both fascinating and disturbing. It is amazing that he is still alive and has no injuries from it all. Then he answered many very sensitive questions in great detail, about the war and politics, both past and present, in this area. My head is still swimming with the stories and issues that still exist today and the seemingly endless cycle of it all.
