A weekend escape from New York City's blistering winter brought me and a few friends to the gorgeous town of Cartagena. The second we landed, we were transported to a vibrant, pleasure-filled world.
Colombia was a land of many paradoxes, from the islands to Cartagena's old town. Perspective was gained here - to celebrate health, the joys of living, and the beauty of this Earth. We swam under the moonlight with phytoplankton, we sipped cervezas in Playa Blanca, and we danced on the colonial streets of Cartagena. Life is precious. Get as much of it as you can.
