Weekending in Cartagena

We arrived in Cartagena and was immediately greeted by the humidity! Steamy!

We booked a place on Air bnb. It was a old convent turned bed and breakfast. Originally, the room was suppose to be a single double bed. We got upgraded to a bigger room with two beds, bathroom and balcony with a view of the ocean!

We had a few BBC beers and delicious fresh ceviche. I didn’t get pictures of the food!

Different door knockers symbolizes different households. Lizard meant royalty, fishes meant they were in the fishing business etc.

For lunch we stopped at Cevicheria. It was featured on No Reservations with Anthony Bourdain. Ironically, we passed by the restaurant during our walking tour and saw the owner!

We grabbed a refreshing coconut before heading to another tour in the afternoon. It was scorching hot.
