Chapter 4: Sunset in Paradise

I walk down the streets of Cartagena de Indias in the sunset. The colonial houses and the soft breeze send me back to the past; to a time I did not experience but which can be felt in every corner. The colours around me merge with the vegetation and I feel I am in Paradise.

All around, I imagine men and women dressed in greens and yellows, highlighted with some pink. Bohemian style with a romantic touch, knitwear garments with textures and jacquards reminiscent of the surrounding vegetation, imitating palm tree leaves and tropical plants.

I feel I am part of that scene, of that world of sensations, like an old-time movie star.

I do not want to wake up from this dream… but it is only another stop in my journey.
