In case the tone of this blog was not as stark as the beach attire of the Colombianas, let it be known I love them.

One particular morning, we decided to try out a beach on the new city side but found it to be pretty underwhelming. Several men offered us a boat ride over to Playa Blanca, and though we knew they wouldn't be taking us to THE Playa Blanca for the price they offered ($5 round trip/person), we figured it had to be ...
