... go nuts. It was also just really scary at this point too because we never reached an appropriate cruising height and we are dipping up and down again. It was a truly horrible feeling that I hope to never experience again. Everyone was EXTREMELY nervous but we did land safely. All of the passengers were honestly thankful to have made it down safely; that's how bad the flight was. They then said that we were going to get off and that buses would ...
... it very clear indeed, that a negative opinion is no opinion and that the way I dress, I would rarely be in a position to judge on what's fashionable anyway. That hurt. Me not fashionable?! I'm the reincarnation of Coco Chanel, man. The traffic lights turn green when I walk by. Anyway, I kept on nodding in disbelieve, impatience and amusement from that moment on and knew he'd take it as approval, when he asked me if the tight blue shirt looks hot enough for picking up chicks. And if ...
... fee. We each tried to go under the sufrace, but it was impossible we had to plunge each other under the sufrace, and even then I couldnt feel the bottom. One of the boys in our group, had really look hair, and after being plunged a Colombian called out... Jesus... Jesus, he did look remarkably like the son of God, but was not quite walking on water but bobbing in mud. On climbing the steps back out, they slide off the excess mud, before you walk down the other side and into a ...
... decorated with ornate doors and flower laden balconies. On the downside I dont think Ive ever seen so many street vendors. Coke? Beer? Hat? Watch? Fan? No, no, no. It gets boring fast. There was one guy whose product was impressive. Hand painted art, on glass, done in 3 minutes and quality. If we had any money left we might have bought some. After walking through the city we came to the Museum of Gold, next to the Cathedral and Town Hall. This was fairly interesting, ...
... we have now will be beneficial in the plans that God has for us in the Kingdom. Jaime S. gave the sermon and he spoke about Hope. Though we may have troubles in this life, God gives us the hope in a better future in His Kingdom.

TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Lee Cartagena
Cartagena hotels are very pricey during Christmas and the New Year, but the Hotel Lee represented fair value. Less than a five minute walk to the old town, it's close to all the action, but also quiet enough for a good sleep. It's in a part of Getsemani undergoing gentrification, with boutique shops and nice restaurants sprouting up just outside the hotel's doors. Will probably be a very upscale street in a few years.
The hotel was always kept spotless, and the rooftop lounge/pool was great to cool off in the afternoon. The staff was phenomenal, especially the manager, Luis. He went above and beyond answering our questions, and helping us book tours and private transport to Santa Marta. Upon arrival there, we realized we had left behind a pair of sandals - no problem, as Luis not only quickly located them, but couriered them to our final stop in Bogota. Would definitely recommend this place and also return in the future.
