Colombia In My Mind’s Eye

Anticipation is the sweetest nectar. Here are some photos from my last visit to Colombia. Who wouldn’t look forward to more of this?

Night in the old city of Cartagena with touristy horse and carriage ride.

I also remember dancing at every turn, the Jack Daniels at the weddings, the fruit juices squeezed fresh, the soups topped with avocado, the fried cheese bread balls served in bags, the burger topped with shredded chicken, donuts bought at the airport like a duty free item, jeans worn tight as second skin, the fort in Cartagena hugging the town of dreams… will the Colombia of the future outdo what I can see in my memories?

Beauty for the tourists.

Beauty for the tourists.
