Leticia, Amazonas Department, Colombia
Bribing pilot's to get to BogotaWe were told the only way to get out of Leticia and up to central Colombia is to walk into the local airport, wait for a cargo flight to land, track down the pilot and pay him in cash to take you up there on his return flight.
There were no stewardesses, no cocktails, and no real seats. Just a few parachutes on the walls and a lot of noise.
I wondered the entire time what else the pilot was carrying back!
