Clearing customs in Colombia was easy, but communicating with the taxi driver was not
The hostel is in the more developed area of Cartagena, but nothing special. We we met a few English girls who are most of the way through a one year trip and a few Americans who are here for a few weeks. Everyone commented our bags are small for the trip, but thatŽll make our lives easier. For some reason the entire town ran out of water, so no bathrooms or showers for the first 24 hrs..yikes!
We walked over to the old town to check out the walled city and were treated to some kids dancing in the main
square. Then we had some dinner and picked up a bottle of wine. Walked around for another hour and then caught a cab back to the hostel. The city is really nice and the old town has some beautiful Spanish architecture within the walls, but after leaving Canada weŽre looking for some beach time and the beach here ainŽt all that pretty.
Next stop Santa Marta.
