STORIES, PICTURES, RECIPES AND MORE... FROM ALL OVER THE WORLD

I waited a long time until I tried to formulate my impressions and feelings about Cartagena.

 

It wasn’t love at first sight. It is a rather complicated relationship.

But aren’t those the ones that are the most interesting?

 

A friend said, he loves Cartagena this much because of its diversity.

And maybe that’s the key. Cartagena has so many aspects; for some you will fall immediately and some will try you. 

 

But like a good lover Cartagena knows to hide its problems behind a smile and keeps the magic alive.

For 4 days we will be playing pirate on a sailing vessel built in 1903.

A recomendation of a colleague and a birthday present for Markus.

We didn't quite know, what to expect having heard a lot of good ("San Blas islands are a dream come true!") and bad things ("The crew was drunk almost all of the time...") about the ships sailing between Panama and Colombia.

Well, we were about to find out! :-P

After a short drive and several stops to pick up the tennis shoes of those people (including us) who didn’t think of them in the first place, we arrive at a dusty parking slot. There are 2 sheds holding a small shop and 2 rooms full of equipment. 

 

With 10 people from school we enter the room and they tell us some basics: Take off the security cap and latch only in the field, wear your mask at any time in the field, don’t shoot at someone closer than 5 meters, don’t shoot at someone holding his hands up etc.

 

Next thing: Do we want to wear long pants and sleeves, as it might not hurt that much, if you are hit? 

After a short look at the evil smiling guys in our group all girls nod vigorously...
