Merry Christmas and Happy New Year
24 December 2017 | Cartagena, Columbia
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from the Allegria crew. We are still in Cartagena for the Holidays. The weather has been wonderful, still very warm, but not as oppressive as before. The Christmas winds have set in so we have a nice breeze most of the time. We have been enjoying Lisa and have been seeing the sights, visiting museums, and feasting on the local cuisine.
The city is a delight, and all alight with decorations and very festive. In the evening things come alive as the temps cool down the action heats up. I have enjoyed strolling around as much as anything, looking at the street vendors wares and people watching. The old buildings and churches are magical and there is a lot of music and activity.
We will stay here until the 30th and then probably head out again. Lisa leaves to go home on the 29th, back to the cold north. If the weather allows we would try to jump north to Honduras, but it is very unlikely. The winds are howling (30-40 knots) and likely will not lessen enough for us to make that run. We will likely go back to Panama and enjoy the islands for a couple of months and then head north when the winds lay down a bit.
We hope this finds you well and we wish you the most wonderful Holidays and all the best in the New Year.
