Cartagena – the start!

Last night our midnight flight left Santiago in 1•C temps. Today we are in Cartagena where it’s around 34•C. Being north of the equator on summer solstice will do that!
Our accom booking messed up and we had to wander the streets in the baking midday heat to book our hostel for the 2 nights after tonight. That’s now sorted.
Next mission was food! We got 10 small cheese rolls (baked a moment earlier), water, yogurt, fresh squeezed lime juice (with added sugar water and ice) and a cup of mango slices for around $5. Ate it on the hostel balcony – the photo is the view from the balcony complete with a shower, just to cool off. Nice work #Colombia!

One thought on “Cartagena – the start!

  1. It is great to read of your adventures. Sth America is just so different to where we are everything is so exact and perfect I think OCD is not a disorder here but a national character trait. We have not seen one piece of rubbish on the ground on 2 weeks. We are loving it. Getting around has been straight forward.
    Love to you both
