Up and out, and past the 49 meter tall, bronze, African Renaissance Monument en-route to the airport. With the monument in the background, along with Russian Anotov and US AWACS planes (French / Mali assistance?) we jet off for our longest travel day to date, nearly 10 hours of flying time to land five time zone later in Cartagena, Columbia. A brief tour of the La Popa Monastery, with its spectacular views of the city below, precedes our trip back to the old town, to check in at the fabulous Sofitel Hotel, Santa Clara. Roof top dinner, with cocktails and a beautiful sunset, end this lovely day.
