Day 2 of Colombian Caribbean Highlights by Bamba Experience
“Free day in Cartagena”
Second hostel night survived thanks to neuroth. Super noisy, kids scream and the drunken twens fall the wooden stairs up. I still slept well.
Get up, get laundry from Selinas reception. Finally it is ready. They burnt my hiking trousers and socks. How the f@#$ can you burn socks? I bring them back to reception. She will negotiate with the laundry company until this evening. This game we had before – the finalization timeline slipped 5 times. Every started 3 kgs cost 25.000 pesos (7.5 eur), I had 7 kgs. Without the burnt socks and trouses it would have been surely 6 kgs … bad luck.
I go and get a super breakfast. Stepping Stone again, Tripadvisors Nr 1 for breakfast. I take the same like yesterday. The musli is a sensation.
Ok, maybe it was too much. I ask them to put the wrap in a box.
I look for a peluquero (hairdresser). It has been more than a month. Every shop I pass, is closed. Sunday. Definitely today it is not the hot season, it is the other one, superhot and super humid. They celebrate childrens day today. Lots of children in colored vests around.
I go to “La Brioche” again, for one of this Almond Croissants and another Lulu juice.
The lulu juice sin asucre is so damn sour, I get a sweppes face.
It is soo hot, I go back to selina to the pool. Ahhhhhh
Then I pack my (light) luggage for 4 nights in a hammock to the lost city and 2 additional nights to Cabo de la Vela and Puntas Gallinas.
I go to eat into old city to pezetarian again.
Then I go home.
