Land of the free!
07 February 2008 | COLOMBIA
Hey people! Wow what a trip! We sailed from Aruba South-West along the Colombian Coast. We stopped in many places and are blown away! Winds are blowing off the 14000ft mountains like no tomorrow! We are falling in love with this country, the people here all want to help you and are all smiles! The markets are chuck-ful-of-nuts with all the fresh vegetables and fruits, and best of all its all organic! We explored the old city of Cartegena yesterday and the kids learned their history especially about Mr. Simon Bolivar! His statue is in every park! We would so much like to stay here a bit longer, but my parents are waiting anxiously in the San Blas islands in Panama. These islands are still inhabited by the native Kuna indians and the water is crystal clear! We leave next week, it will be a two-nighter, hopefully the waves will behave! Well my friends thanks for checking in on us, we are excited at your responses! till next time ...the crystals
