The grass is indeed greener in Cartagena

While browsing through the pages of a Veranda magazine, I found these great pictures of a "casa grande" in Cartagena, Colombia. I just love the way the architect (Alberto Burckhardt) managed to preserve the historic structure of a 250 years old house while still creating a modern & minimalistic retreat. 

Mental note: add Cartagena to the places I would like to visit this year list.

Editor's note: I love hammocks, they are beautiful & simple. Yes my back hurts if I use them for long, but don't we all deserve a bright soft hammock? Damn office chairs, damn you to hell!

Hey you! living in the North Hemisphere (more specifically in the North East area of the US), did you find yourself crying after seeing these pictures? I want you to know that you are not alone, I feel your pain, specially today when the wind had no mercy and froze us to death.
Oh Cartagena, why are you doing this to us?

...the grass is definitely greener on the other side.
