Colombia, Cartagena

    Well this is my first time in Colombia and I am in love with the food and people form there. I only had the chance to go visit Cartagena which is on the Caribbean coast of Colombia. Cartagena is famous because of its older side of town, which is all surrounded by a wall. Inside the beautiful colors of houses never stop, and there are incredible restaurants in there as well. I would highly recommend eating at Cuzco where I had the most delicious ceviche I have had in my life, and I had just spent a week in Peru before tasting it. So having tried a better ceviche outside of Peru says something about that restaurant, i believe. Also don't miss La Vera for a great Italian meal, and La Cevicheria if you trust Anthony Bourdain's palate (he was there). Enjoy Cartagena, go whenever possible, you feel how warm the place is, the people are incredibly welcoming and the food will make you never want to leave. I read this at a Colombian airport and its funny and ironic because of Colombia's bad reputation: "The only risk when visiting Colombia is never wanting to leave"... wise words.
