yesterday we arrived in `Cartagena de Indias´ after almost 17 hours up in the sky. so we were so glad to finally check in our hostel in the center of the beautiful historic city. people walking around, laughing, a wonderful sunset and a cold shower made as coming back to reality at about 24:00 in german time. anyway the next day (today) we were back again with full power and enthusiasm. after a really yummy breakfast (with the best maracuja juice ever) we started our walkaround in the city. the tiny streets are like so so cute, colorful and lively .. i just couldn’t srop watching all the time (and taking photos of course). we also visited the `Castillo de Cartagena´ an old castle on a hill right behind the center district called `Getsemaní´. up there we had such a good view over the whole city and the coast after we almost suffered from a collapse because of the climate (the fuckin’ heat). we had a wonderful afternoon wondering around the city, watching people (or better: people watching us) and just enjoying the new lifestyle here – just feeling the freedom.
and now i’m just sitting at the balcony of our hostal drinking some Corona with my boyfriend, making plans for tomorrow and editing photos (and actually writing some news in my blog).
what a wonderful first day of our trip on the way out nowhere.
