In Colombia ;)

July 8, 2007  
Topics: Colombia


after a 5 days trip from Merida, Venezuela, to Cartagena, we spent already three days in this wonderful, historical city of Colombia. On our way to Cartagena we met a lot of nice people, inviting us not only for a ride, but many times helping to find us a safe place to stay overnight.

Cartagena is a marvellous, beautiful city. Its historical center with its colorfull houses reminds us a lot San Cristobal de las Casas in Mexico, where we easily could have stopped travelling for a while. We enjoyed the first afternoon in Cartagena’s famous Parque Bolivar, where besides lemonade and fruit sellers appeared groups of young dancers, demonstrating the traditional dances of the region. It was a fascinating spectacle.

We will stay until Tuesday this week, and on Wednesday head towards Bucaramanga, where we were invited to stay with the family of one of the drivers who picked us up on the way to Cartagena. Afterwards we go to Bogota for a couple of days.

Enjoy life and receive with happiness our greetings from Colombia!
