We have been in Colombia for a little over a week and while I'm not qualified to give any real food critique, we have made a few first impressions. So far, the food has been pretty good, freshly made and you are never rushed through a meal. Produce and meat in general are very flavorful … Continue reading First Impressions: Food
Well, after many flight hours logged and a few stops in between, we made it. I could see Cartagena very clearly flying in and what a sight. Big buildings towering over this little peninsula.
