The sweet seller

The sweet sellerOnce we reached (by boat) the deeper beaches of Tayrona, stayed there to enjoy the nice weather and the Caribbean tiepid waters. Rest of the day involved mostly swimming, snorkeling in the coral riffs (sorry guys, don’t have the equipment for underwater photography!) and having a lunch consisting in the most delicious fresh fish. Every now and then, this lady, who would refer to herself as “la negra, pa’ servirles” came by and offered us some delicious Colombian sweets that costed virtually nothing. I found really impressive how she could walk with that huge basket perfectly balanced on her head while wiggling her hips from side to side. Many a catwalk model could have taken a lesson or two from la negra!

Tree in the beach

 

After a couple of days in Bogotá, went north to Santa Marta. From there I went on a guided visit to Tayrona National Park. After passing by the beach of the seven waves, this is the beach where we came out of the truck in order to continue our trip by boat. Probably the most amazing feature of all these beaches, even more than the wonderful blue waters, is how trees keep growing almost all the way to the sea.

The beach of the seven waves

In case you were wondering why there weren’t any updates during the last two weeks, it is because I was here:

This is the beach of the seven waves in the Tayrona National Park, close to the lovely city of Santa Marta, in Colombia. More news and photos from my caribbean trip will follow soon. In the meantime, you can let me know how jealous you are in the comments! ;-)
