... defense built by the Spaniards and was never taken in battle. There were all these underground dark tunnels you could walk through, which were a nice way to get out of the sun. After that we headed back to the hostel and watched the end of the Netherlands vs. Costa Rica game and relaxed for awhile. We went out later for a DELICIOUS fish dinner and got drinks in an outdoor plaza before heading home to get read my to head to Santa Marta in the ...
It was a real early start to get to Cartagena, we had to be up and ready by 5.30 am. We had a private transfer to Medellin Airport, which is about 45 min drive away, without traffic. It took some time to check in with Avianca, but that didn't matter as to plane was delayed, again! We eventually took off an hour late at 8.15, and landed to a sunny, humid Cartagena at 9.30 am. It was only a short ride to the Hotel Colonial Villa, located in the Getsemani area of the ...
... 8230; no, she was definitely really high.
Knowing we had so much time in Cartagena it took us several days before we actually made it to the walled city, known as "La Ciudad Amurallada" in Spanish, or "jackpot" in the parlance of terrace bars promoting sunset happy hours. We went for a meal in a quiet, picturesque plaza with, Alex, a friend we met a couple years ago in Guatemala (like us, he is still aimlessly roaming the globe; unlike us, he is actually still ...
... advantage of the free vodka and orange and empanadas. Chatting to Esther and her friend, dancing to band and then the DJ. Talked to few authors and hung out with the British Council guys. Fell into bed about 4am after a magical night, helped I think by the setting and the free alcohol. Got up four hours later, rather tired and headed to our last volunteer meeting at Santa Clara, not looking my best for the volunteers photo. After meeting went and moved hostels, then working ...
... the rules of the road are very simple, bigger has the right of way. Went you want to cross the street you look right, then left then run like He....! After our guided tour we had time to shop the market stalls and little shops set up on the streets. I got the most delicious chocolate bar and picked up some coffee, and a much needed hat made from coconut fibers! It is a holiday weekend and the are celebrating their Independence as well as it it's the weekend ...

It's a beautiful place! All is decorated nicely, beautifully colored walls, hamocks and relaxing chairs along the pool.
It's hot here and you really need the swimming pool to cool down a bit. The water of the pool is nice to stay in int forever with maybe 27C whilst the air is well above 30C.
Aircondition in all rooms. TV + DVD player in the room (for a rainy day?). Nice common area with big table.
The hotel is located less than 10 min. walking to the historic center. Wow, what a great city! By far the most beautiful city we've seen in Colombia.
Breakfast is included: toast bread (unfortunately no French baguette as we hoped since the owner is French), crepes or eggs, fruit salad, ham, cheese, jam. Great that it is available until 11am.
It's a bit expensive (COP 140'000), but I believe it is worth it. It's certainly by far nicer here than in one of the big hotels.
