A close friend of mine from London invited me to a trip he was doing to Cartagena. I had never been to Colombia and I had just been telling my mother that I had to get to know Latin America better, so the timing here was perfect. With a few Colombian friends here and there, it hadn't occurred to me how much I had been missing out on.

I decided to separate the short trip into a few visual sections. All of them were influenced and nurtured by Cartageneros we met. In particular a wonderful couple, Alex and Cristian (a teacher and a lawyer) who wish to start their own NGO in Cartagena, Alfonso (my taxi driver from the airport), Renato (a happy coincidence in Isla Grande) and Orlando, who very kindly drove us to Minca and got his car stuck between the jungle and a river.
