I have just arrived from a 6-day trip from the most famous city in the world, which I visited the first time in my life (my friends used to tell me: „you have been everywhere, how come you have never visited the Big Apple?”). Too many things have been written…

Day 1, Thursday: I came by bus from El Rodadero and when entering the city I had the impression that Barranquilla was much bigger than I had imagined. I arrived in El Prado, an old (built with drug’s money) but amazing hotel which I had booked for 37€/night. After the…
