Word Travels - COLOMBIA - A Story Clear as Mud
COLOMBIA - A Story Clear as Mud
The job of a travel writer is to inspire, and to break myths. Far from being a war zone, our writers are stunned by Colombia's warmth and beauty, but a bankable story needs more edge. Julia looks into the art of buying emeralds, Robin visits the infamous bulletproof tailor of Bogota, and both head to Cartagena for a dip inside the crater of a chocolate mud volcano.
