In the afternoon we went to the Palace of Inquisition which had exhibits of torture and execution equipment, pretty grim and historical information.
Today we visited a mud volcano which was about 1hr bus ride from Cartagena, never done anything like this before, after stripping down to our swim wear we climbed up some steps to the mud and got in. Really weird feeling, the mud was very thick and also there was no bottom and we could stand straight in the mud without sinking. We also had a massage in the mud which was very relaxing and which also meant that if any part of you wasnt covered in mud then it soon would be. Afterwards we went to the lake to wash off all of the mud, luckily there are some Colombian women to help otherwise we would never have got the mud off. Our swimwear will never be the same colour again.
