Report by Dirk
Thursday 29th May
First we go to the harbour to inform if we can get the cars today.
After a lot of paperwork at the customs we hear that we can not get the cars today.
They told us to come back tomorrow.
At the evening Trudy drinks her first Colombian beer: Aquila, and she likes the taste, specially in this hot weather.
Fridday 30th May
At the harbour they tell us that we cannot pick up the cars today.
We have to come back Tuesday, next week.
So we have a couple of days to discover Cartagena; a beautiful old colonial city
In the evening our driver Rudolfo brings us to the airport to pick up our first crew.
Daan and Floor Botter from Edam, the city where we also live in Holland.
Besides the cars, we are a complete team now.
Saturday 31st May
Today we are invited to go to the beach, not far from Cartagena, called Playa Blanca.
It is really a beautiful tropical beach and we enjoyed in our beach camp.
The water was nice to swim in, the food was good and the women beautiful.
On our way back we passed the harbour with a lot of containers: in one of these must be our container!!!!!!!
