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.

Travel stylishly,

Summer Favorites

This season has been completely jam-packed starting with my retiring from teaching, welcoming our newest member to the family……my niece Aria on June 20th, and have plans for traveling again in the next few weeks. Remember days from summers past, when we could stay out late playing into the night or socializing with friends and neighbors by the water.

August is the final full month of summer, and as light begins to dwindle so, will the fruits of summer. Enjoy the remaining pleasures of midsummer by grabbing an occasional ice cream, gazing at the stars, or traveling to far of places.

I enjoy sipping mint tea on the front porch in the cool morning air or having a cocktail in the evening.

Taking time to relax at a spa like beach with no distractions. Fresh steamed crabs makes an easy summer meal with slices of watermelon…..!!!

Simply enjoy,
Kathleen
