Where I stayed
Casa Patrick

Flag of Colombia  ,
Tuesday, December 30, 2008

Before we left Galway we had met Pat an Irish guy who lived in Colombia and promised to visit him when we got there. He is living in Santa Marta the city only about five km from Taganga. We met him for lunch and he took us to see the hostel he was building. Then later in the evening he took us out to the farm/guesthouse he had outside Santa Marta. Although it is only twelve km away from the city it feels like a different world. The road up to it is so bad we had to hop on the back of some motorbikes to get there, and it is very remote and peaceful. Pat has been over and back to Colombia for a good few years so he has some very interesting stories from the countries more troublesome years trying to deal with paramilitaries and guerrillas. The next day we were left to wander around the area and swim in some refreshing waterfall pools. Although we loved Taganga, it was good to get away from all the madness even if it was only for one night.
