I have to admit, I actually enjoy taking the subway in NYC. I think that’s one way to have real, accurate perspectives of life in the city. After all, most New Yorkers take the subway.

Going to Cartagena de Indias was definitely interesting. I didn’t know much about the city beforehand. I don’t remember ever seeing anything about Cartagena on TV. I had heard Colombian friends talk about Medellin, Cali and Perreira, and other places but very little about Cartagena. I first found out about Cartagena while looking for deals on JetBlue.
Dance is a fun and powerful activity that can provide insights into a country’s culture. Through dance, we can learn a great deal about a country’s history, manners and identity. I’ve always been fascinated by dance and recently I’ve learned a number of dances from different countries.
