Colombia

Cartagena!

29 °C

Day 1:
Hello everyone,
Today I have travelled over 9 hours and I am finally able to reveal where I will be spending the next three days! I am in sunny Colombia! I love the hot weather as in Canada we don't really experience the hot climate throughout the entire year, but here it is always hot! So today I begin my journey in the city of Cartagena, Colombia. As I did some research on this city, it is a village with beaches, a modern area, and a great place to eat and indulge into the Colombian culture! There are many ships that pass by, and I heard it is one of the safest places to visit here in Colombia. So as I begin adventuring out into the city I find a museum that looks very interesting called the "Museo de Arte Moderno". This is a museum that display the beautiful artwork in a 17th century home, and showcases a local artist Enrique Grau, who creates Latin American art.
Here are a few photos that show the beautiful artwork that was created:

Not only was I able to go to one Museum, I was also able to visit the famous Cathedral de San Pedro Claver. This is nothing like the Cathedrals back at home, it is so grand and very delicate and a very famous historical sight to visit. It is also seen as a museum in the way that there are many painting that surround the church that are very beautiful and interesting to see the various art pieces that make the Cathedral come alive.
Here are some photos of the interior and exterior of the Cathedral:

As I make my way back to the hotel, I continue to plan out the rest of my tour around the world! I have decided that I will be going to my next nearby country tomorrow as this trip will be a long while. On to the next country see you there!
