Cartagena, Colombia

Cartagena is beautiful. A  25 hour bus ride North of Bogota, it’s a little like Colonia del Sacramento Colombia Uruguay, or a tropical version of the shambles, York.

I meet Christine (America) and we go to the Volcan de Lodo El Totumo; a mud volcano. Lowering yourself into the 15m pit has so be one of the strangest sensations in the world. It’s consistency is like wallpaper paste and cake batter. Apparently it has therapeutic minerals, which feels great when villagers massage it all over you.If mud in your ears, hair, mouth isn’t weird enough, stranger still is the fact that you become super buoyant. Unlike water, it’s is impossible to sink. It’s what hanging out on Mars must feel like, and you emerge like an alien to walk 20 meters like a swamp monster to a lake to wash it all off. It was pretty fun.

In an attempt to shed dried mud from our pores, (and just hangout on a stunning beach to be honest,) the next day 8 of us head to Playa Blanca. 20km from Cartagena on Isla de Baru, this is where the Caribbean, and a little authentic Colombia, kicks in.
