We arrived in Cartagena after 9pm, to find that there was some confusion with the hotel about where we were to stay. After some discussion, we all had somewhere to sleep and a few of us went out to find dinner. The place we found had a little kitten in it which we assumed belonged there as it was hell bent on playing with the tablecloth on an empty table and bringing it and the rack of serviettes down on top of it. You would think once might be enough, but no, twice was necessary.
We have six nights here, so we expect to get a bit more foam before our time here is out.
NB: We didn't do a lot in Cartagena except wander around, join the party and get very warm and a bit more foamy. We did have an amusing encounter one evening that reminded us of the scene in Love Actually with the japanese businessman at a hotel reception. A group of us had just been out for the evening and the two Belgian girls were leaving to fly out the next day. Some local guy started chatting to us as we were saying our goodbyes and watched as each of them in turn came up to me and gave me a big hug and a kiss. He looked a little bemused, but then presumably decided that this was some kind of tradition for us and did the same. Strange but harmless, and quite amusing.
