God, AIDS, Africa & HOPE

Reflections / Gedanken

Day 16: 2nd May 2011

We are on the road again – not with our cars, but after breakfast at “Villa Michelle” the owner and her friend take us to the airport in Panama City. A cordial farewell and we catch the flight at 3.15pm to Cartagena in Columbia with Copa Air.

An hour later we arrive in this coastal Caribbean town. Three taxis bring us to the old town of the city, giving us a first taste of the rules on the roads of Columbia. Happy to have arrived all in one piece, we occupy our rooms at Media Luna Hostel. A lovely place with a wonderful courtyard, a small pool shadowed by palm trees, and a roof terrace showing us the beauty of the old town and the skyline of modern Cartagena.

Would we be backpackers it would have been an ideal place to stay, but with our “move the world” t-shirts, all the equipment and certainly our age we attract a bit of extra attention.

And as to be expected the flyers are distributed quickly and spread amongst the crowd.

We hope that we can celebrate a reunion as quick as possible with our cars to be on the road again – in the true sense of the word.

HIV, Development and HOPE – thoughts of a Catholic priest

Being a Roman - Catholic priest and working in the fields of HIV and social development in Africa has its challenges. You will find stories and reflections about my work, about the church, South Africa and Africa, about politics and whatever triggers my interest. You are most welcome to leave a comment or to get in touch with me. Blogging means to initiate thoughts and discussions and for the writer to formulate what is loosely running around in the heart and mind in need of being sorted and spoken out.
