Cartagena and Playa Blanca


When we arrive in Cartagena we look for accommodation with Greg and Marie, near the walled city. We find what we look for, economic and well-located.

In the morning I take a walk around the walled center. I love it! Narrow streets and colonial houses with well-preserved courtyards, cafes, shops and walls ... although be very different, the rhythm is similar to the inside walls of Tarragona.





For lunch, I meet with Greg and Marie. We eat fish and we go to have a Tinto (coffee) in the walled city. And as we are doing a tinto in a square, the weather change and begins to rain very hard! The refuge we found is the music school, with a lovely courtyard.

At night I wanted to meet Ana Milena. We went to eat a pizza with her friend Maria, Greg and Marie.



The city is beautiful at night!

When I wake up I prepare a small bag and after meet with Greg and Marie, we go to Playa Blanca in the Baru island. White sand beach and sea with turquoise water ... a delightful place.



I camped under a shed to protect the tent from the sun, and straight into the water! great! We enjoy the good weather that we are having.

In the evening we drink a Coco loco and we chat ...

At night is not easy to sleep the heat is so heavy!

In the morning, we rent a pair for snorkeling ... How many fish for god!


And at the afternoon we return to Cartagena by speed boat.

I have dinner with Ana and Maria at Bocagrande and we go to drink few beers ...



In the morning, I walk around the old town again and I buy the bus ticket to Medellin and I go for lunch with Anna and Maria, this time at La Mulata ... a delightful restaurant.



And night bus again!
