It’s easy to get lost within this city’s walls. There is a maze of cosy, colorful and narrow streets. But there is a huge difference of being lost and simply not just know where you are going. Being lost looking for your path to your destination can be stressful and negative, while not just know where you are going, is to me, the straight opposite; relaxing and a feeling of total freedom.
This city on the Colombian Caribbean coast is called the Miami of Colombia. I guess the reason is because Miami also has a lot of colorful buildings in the Art Deco district and they are both coastal with skyscrapers and beaches. Comparing the beaches will be as comparing wine and water – in Miami they are big, white and with really nice water. Here they are small, dark and really murky water. I guess Uncle Sam still is big brother, not very surprising.
I spent 3 days here and that’s more than enough. Strolling around the old city is nice and I used the opportunity of exercising at some good gyms. Usually I prefer working out outdoors but it’s just to hot and humid here to do that.
If I should sum up this city, it would be like some women are; beautiful, hot and pretty boring. Now heading on further up north east on the Colombian coast in search of some paradise beaches.
