20nth of September
Cycling to the … hippest secret of Latin America!!!

We woke up, had our breakfast and of to the city again.
Since we had not managed to move by bicycle in Bogota, which is famous for its cycle roads, we decided to live the experience in Cartagena. So, we took bicycles and started for a mini tour of the historic center.



We rode with our bikes on the coastal avenue, Avenida Santander, with views to the Carribean, till Casa de Gabriel Garcia Marquez, the house where Gabriel Garcia Marquez lived, inspired and wrote his book “Love in the Years of Cholera”.
 


We took some photos in front of Marzolathe famous Argentinean restaurant. 
We repeated more or less all the walking routes of the previous day…
 


We arrived at Muelle de la Bodeguita too, searching for a ferry that would take us to the national park of the  Rosario Islands. Unfortunately it was too late and there was no time for this excursion, something that didn’t really bother us too much, since we would have more time to spend in the old town.
Exhausted and very thirsty because of the intense heat, we sat at a bench in Bolivar Plaza, right opposite to Catedral de Santa Catalina, to enjoy some cold lemonade… We ended up drinking four bottles of it and we could continue drinking, if we wouldn’t have to return the bicycles.

We spent the whole afternoon walking, surrounded by an amazing landscape, not being able to get enough of the beauties in Cartagena!



But, on the other hand, how can one get ever enough of a city, which has been transformed in the last years to the hippest secret of Latin America and, truth be told, this fact is not accidental at all

The fact is that the many refreshing intervals, during this amazing exploration, had helped us a lot to continue and we didn’t miss a stop to all the famous places like La Paletteria and  Gelateria Paradiso...
