This I mumbled from under the sheets early Friday morning.
“Really babe, I swear, I’m not just making this up because I don’t want to go to another museum today”
5 minutes later projectile vomit shot across the room. At that point I knew I had a day off from the Cartagena museum tour. I spent the next 16 hours in the fetal position shaking in a cold sweat. It was a bad case of food poisoning. The worst I’ve had since we crossed the border into Mexico 8 months ago. Stevie stayed by my side all day rubbing my head. From under the blanket I heard her say in an all too sweet voice,
“I wouldn’t think of going to the museum without you lover. Just rest and we’ll pick up again tomorrow when you feel better.”
En Serio. I really love this woman. For a second there I thought I was going to miss something.
The next day Stevie took pity on me and instead of another museum she organized a trip to Castillo de San Felipe de Barajas. This castle was the greatest and strongest fortress ever built by the Spaniards in all the Americas. It was truly impregnable and was never taken, despite numerous attempts to storm it. My kind of place! (click to enlarge photos)
After my stomach settled down we went back out on the night scene. Check out these amazing street dancers in this video…
