Tabaco y Ron [Cartagena]

Tabaco y Ron 38146 38- a, Cra. 8, Cartagena de Indias, Provincia de Cartagena, Bolívar, Colombia

From our first day in Cartagena, we explored each cobblestone street and square to familiarize ourselves with the port city. The heat from the tropical climate was intensified immensely by the humidity. Sightseeing included ducking into the colorful buildings, cathedrals and parks to escape the sun. During the siesta hours we found a quaint establishment called Tabaco y Ron, which became our daily hideaway to relax and unwind around 3:30 or 4:00ish. A few family members enjoyed cigars, as they have authentic Cuban Habano’s for the connoisseur. It was a cool place to escape from the sweltering heat while enjoying a light snack, a refreshing drink and listening to music. The artwork on the walls were painted by local artist. The portraits were most creative, there are two paintings I want to purchase upon my return trip in May 2023.

Destination: Bali

Bali offers a magical blend of culture, people, nature and culinary diversions that will have you scouring the island. Earlier this week several family members spent a day trip to the island of Nusa Penida with snorkeling at Mantay Bay along with stops to take in Kelingking Beach, Broken Cliffs Beach and Angel Bllabong Beach.

Most of Bali is mountainous which is great for hiking, but Broken Beach is an incredible cove with an archway that wraps around the bay allowing the ocean to flow in and out of Nusa Penida Island. Kelingking Beach is hidden with framed towering cliffs, deep turquoise blue water and white sandy shores with the most amazing views.

Jatiluwith UNESCO heritage site of rice terraces along with Tanah Lot temple, Pura Ulun Danu Beratan and Mengwi Taman Ayun temple. Love the cats in the lower right photograph [pretend they’re tigers]!!!
