- Destination of the Week
It was springtime of 1948 when Gabriel Garcia Marquez arrived in Cartagena de Indias. A law student at the time, the 21-year-old youth could not have known that he would spend the brightest years of his life there. The walk in the shade of the Torre del Reloj was described by him as a “rebirth”. Such is the promise of this town in the Colombian Caribbean. It’s no small thing.
