The pool is clean, big and heated! I loved it. Our room was spacious with good wifi signal and comfortable bed. It also had a balcony. I really appreciated that the a/c was always on (not dependent on whether we were in the room) so it was already cool when we entered. The staff was friendly and informative. Yes, it is a bit away from the walled city (10min drive), but taxis are cheap ($6,000 COP). The shower had good pressure and hot water.

We arrived at the airport with plenty of time. I downloaded the avianca app which i never got to download my e-ticket, so I just got the web version and took a screen shot!

I first heard of Ayahuasca (pronounced Eye-a-wass-ca, or "Yage" in Colombia, pronounced Ya-hay) about a year ago after a current affair or some other diabolical "news" program broadcast a special on this dangerous jungle drink taking the lives of your teens.

As you walk through it takes you through the events in the bible. But as a person who doesn't practice religion, it was really just a pretty fantastic view of what it's like in a salt mine. There were some beautiful sculptures donated by artists and some architectural symbolism made by the miners that I wouldn't have ...
... First day I spent walking around the walled city and then in the afternoon went on a canoe trip....nearly managed to fall out of the canoe as I was getting out of it!!!
I then went for a dinner with some people I had met at the hostel. Colombian food isn"t the greatest...I can see why there is not Colombia restaurants at home! The food basically consists of rice, chips, meat or fish and a lettuce leave! So overload on carbs ...
One of the things I had planned to do in Cartagena was visit the Volcan de Lodo El Totumo, aka a volcano filled with mud. This is about 50K from Cartagena, and it's a 15m volcano mound. Legend is that the volcano once spewed fire, but the local priest, seeing that as the work of the devil, poured holy water on it. He succeeded as the fire subsided and the insides turned to mud. It also has therapeutic qualities. Apparently, people around here are big ...
