Back from Colombia! What a great trip. Cartagena is one of the most beautiful places I've ever visited. The country has to be one of the world's Best Kept Secrets of travel--inexpensive with beautiful architecture, friendly people, fresh seafood galore...and tons of sun. Throw in a superlatively glamorous wedding with the chance to wear a dress fancier than what I wore to high school prom, a Spanish-speaking friend, and NO travel issues, and you get a trip you'll be talking about for a long time.
