A lot of travelers while talking of Cartagena mentioning it’s restaurants, choco museum, islands for beach-day trips and boutiques or it’s nightlife. For me, I wished I would stay there for long long time and walk these magical streets with books of Garcia Marquez in my hands, move from one square to another, from one historical cafe to another from one street banch to another, from one square to another, reading on my way. “All of my books have loose threads of Cartagena in them,” Mr. García Márquez said in some documentary. “And, with time, when I have to call up memories, I always bring back an incident from Cartagena, a place in Cartagena, a character in Cartagena.” This Colombian city made him a writer, the city where Mr. García Márquez arrived with nothing and turned city tales into the most imaginative and surrealistic literature of our era; the city full of myths; the city where the reality is confused with magic and vice versa, that city, which made him a writer.
