Cartagena!!

I am writing this from a lounge in the Zurich Airport, after a great flight from Miami on Swiss Air, waiting to go to Sarajevo, with Columbia as a memory.

I have my sense of humor back, it was rough few days!!! I won’t dwell on the negatives, I only want to say, I don’t know if it was my age, or that I was traveling alone (which you just don’t see in South America), but I seemed to be target for the works, Columbia will never see me again in this life.

Columbia has so much to offer, beautiful scenery, flowers, great food, clean streets, Latin culture, the women are some the most beautiful I have ever seem, and the men around them were well to do Americans or Europeans.

I happened to have a chat with two gentlemen that were with these beauties and believe it or not they were bored, intellectually it didn’t work. I sat across from one gentleman on the plane, he was a Doctor and had gorgeous young woman beside him, they were heading for romantic weekend, and at the end of our chat, he said, I was very interesting, and maybe we could, “have dinner together on the weekend in Cartagena!” I laughed and said, “I think you will be busy!”

I only met one tourist from Europe and none from Canada or the U.S., most were from other South American countries!

About Betty Steinhauer

Betty Steinhauer was born in England and raised in Toronto, Canada. Even as a young mother, Betty was active in the community sitting on a number of boards and lending her expertise to various public organizations. In 1983, she founded Betty Steinhauer & Associates Ltd. a consulting firm where, for twenty-five years, she used her unique abilities to act as a catalyst, facilitator and advisor to both the private and public sectors, in forging relationships between organizations and/or individuals for mutually advantageous outcomes. For many years, Betty travelled widely in out-of-the-way areas of the world. As she travelled, the idea for The People Bridge Charitable Foundation was formed. The People Bridge was registered as a Canadian charity in 1997. The mandate of the Foundation was to facilitate important changes in the lives of ordinary people through small-scale charitable projects. Betty has now retired the Foundation that, during its lifetime, undertook over 100 projects worldwide, mostly in conjunction with organizations already working in the target area. Betty’s experience and expertise in business, along with the advice and assistance she receives from colleagues around the globe, give her a unique ability to spot the need and understand how it can be met. Betty has the unusual combination of an entrepreneur’s abilities and an intrinsic understanding of people. Betty has visited India seventeen times in the past twenty years to pursue her spiritual journey. She has frequently been a guest of the Brahma Kumaris and the World Spiritual University to study meditation and further her own spiritual life. Betty is currently active with the Steering Committee of the Spirit of Humanity Forum, in Reykjavik, Iceland. This is an annual Forum that, it is felt, will become to the spiritual world what the Davos Forum is to the financial world. Betty makes her home in Toronto, and has published her memoir “My Way”. She began her Nomadic Internship in the summer of 2013.

    Hi Betty it looks beautiful

  2. Betty- Sorry Colombia didn’t work for you. We had such a great time there. I loved Medellin and Coffee Country the best. We are on our way to Panama in 2 days for 2 weeks. I’ll let you know what I think. We have a couple of expats to talk to about their life in Panama. We’ll be ther for a conference on Protecting Global Assets. I am looking forward to getting away for a few weeks. Travel Safe. Can’t wait to hear about your next chapter. Barbara
