The Virgin Candelaria is the patron for Cartagena. Sitting above the city on la Popa, she overlooks the city. Cartagena celebrates her the Sunday before February 2nd. A horse procession “la cabalgata” from Boca Grande to the old city start the celebrations on Saturday, which continue into the night at the foot of La Popa and then on Sunday at the monetary.
Together with a few local friends, we ventured out to San Martin to watch the show and drink Mimosas.
Earlier in the week, I went to Cono Gourmet, a restaurant in the Old City serving everything in a cone. The drinks (spearmint and carrot juice) were as delicious as our cones and the atmosphere of the little restaurant is very inviting. Additionally, I loved my time with my friend Sandra.
