Taxi ride from the Airport in Cartagena & Boyfriend Talk

By | April 9, 2012

Here is a video of my taxi ride from Rafael Núñez International Airport in Cartagena to my hostel El Viajero. I never knew I was going to be interviewed about my relationships with men by the taxi driver. The taxi driver didn’t believe me when I told him I didn’t have a boyfriend. He asked, “how can a women so beautiful as you not have a boyfriend?” Gracias taxi driver for the compliment. Well, I guess the main reason why I don’t have a boyfriend is because I haven’t met that special guy yet. Also last year I travelled a lot which didn’t really give me the space and time to have a relationship. I joked around and told me I have lots of boyfriends. It’s not true of course. I told him,”I don’t have a boyfriend, I have lots of boyfriend.” The video has English sub-titles!

TIP: One thing I always do before getting into a taxi is to ask the price of the fare, which helps ensure they won’t make it higher once you reach your destination. Try and find out before the rates, so you have an idea. I’m not saying that everyone in Colombia is out to rip you off, it’s just in tourism destination, tourists are a big source of income to make money. Nothing personal, just business… 😛 I looked on El Viajero Website and saw the ride would be 10,000 Pesos ( $5/$6 CAN/US from the airport into the Walled City!
