At our hotel in Cartagena, Hotel Casa Cochera Del Gobernador, we started every day with a breakfast. My favourite (favorite for non-UK readers ) was
Huevos estrallados con jamón y papas. Followed by a plate of fresh fruit. And all ‘washed down’ with ? What else. A mug of Colombian coffee. And again. And again.
With a full stomach we were ready to continue our exploration of Cartagena . And now, so are you !
Where to next ? How about a bit of torture! The Palacio de la Inquisición :
After a few hours in the museum we needed refreshing so we found ourselves a table
and who should come along to entertain us ? Miss Colombia, who else. She heard the shouts from the street rappers , gave a look towards us as if to say “Let me entertain you” and gave an impromptu performance.
And then it was time to continue with our walk-about. But first a little browsing.
And then for Rose. It had to be done.
Yes, that is a tree in the store.
A study of concentration.
A few hours later (this comment WILL cost me but …) we got back to the streets.
See the manacle on the ankle.
By now we were feeling peckish so it was time for something to eat.
Rose has just seen the menu.
And then a beer.
I can’t recall what this was called. I can ,though, recall how good it tasted.
Watch out for the next thrilling installment to find out how we bravely go beyond the wall. And how we end up in Russia !
