Santa Marta

Heat. Sweltering heat on Colombia’s caribbean coast.

As I was traveling through Santa Marta I read ‘The General in His Labyrinth’. In it, Gabriel Garcia Marquez describes the last days of Simon Bolivar, the great leader in the struggle of Latin America’s independence. He died in Santa Marta. Not in battle and not of the heat either, but of tuberculosis.
