Cartagena

sunny 30 °C

Cartagena is the pearl of Colombia's Caribbean coast. The old colonial walled city has some really beautiful, colourful and well-conserved houses and buildings.
We were lucky enough to be there when the Festival Internacionál de Cine de Cartagena was on so we watched about four films for free. Pescador, an Ecuadorian film, was the one I liked the most. We saw it in world première in the presence of director Sebastián Cordero!

Cartagena has a modern, less interesting part as well. Beaches are better there, though.

With pain in our hearts, we had to leave Colombia, leaving so many things unexplored but with a reason to come back to this beautiful country some day.
I still cannot believe how friendly and well behaved Colombians are.
Hasta luego, Colómbia!
