March 18: To Taganga
_Today we are moving on to Taganga, a fishermen village east of Cartagena, and we decided to go with public transport: bus to bus terminal $1, bus to Santa Marta w/ stop in Baranquilla $12, 4.5hrs. We played backgammon on my i-phone for the whole trip: loved it! In Santa Marta we jumped on a taxi to Taganga, $6, and once there we met immediately Pibe, who offers us a room with shared bath, '1 second to the beach' for $17. Deal. It's a private house open to tourists, around the corner from Hostal Pelican.
The town is very cute, developed and touristy but in an authentic way. A lot of Colombians also come here on holiday. We went straight to the beach, which was full of families, but for some reason I didn't mind as usual, there was a good vibe, a festive atmosphere. A lot of hippies selling their artifacts on the nice street next to the sea, where you can enjoy the view sitting in one of the kiosks that offer drinks and food. Aperetivo with the local beer Aguila and shrimp cocktail, little nap, and back out to explore Taga night life: we end up to Sensation, a club with a nice terrace on the beach and ok music. Finally some dancing.
