Cartagena.June 24, 2019 in Colombia ⋅ ⛅ 30 °C
We flew up from Medellín to Cartagena, a quick flight! We checked into our hostal and headed out for a delish Greek dinner. The people running the hostal were lovely and welcoming and the hostal had a homey vibe.
We spent the next day exploring the old city of Cartagena. The old city sits within a fortress built by the Spanish when they came to keep the pirates out. A huge stone wall surrounds the city, lined with canons. Inside the ‘compound’ lies old stone buildings and narrow streets. Beautiful and bright with great art work and hanging plants randomly around.
The weather is warm and very humid. A great change from the below zeros we’ve experienced not too long ago.
Although this is a ‘beachside’ city the water looks like it would do more harm then good. Icky and grey with rubbish floatin around yicky. Off to Tayrona National Park we go. Hoping to find some clearer waters and even some WAVES. Boy I miss the beach!Read more
