Journey through the imagination of Garcia Marquez

On El Tiempo, via Colombia Reports, I caught wind of a story of what must be a lovely train ride through the countryside that inspired the works of Gabriel Garcia Marquez.

“Departing from Santa Marta, the five hour journey will carry travelers through banana plantations, over swamps, past Remedios La Bella’s monument and Marquez’s Montessori school, before terminating at Garcia Marquez’s home town of Aracataca.

On arrival at the railway station, travelers will be greeted by bicycle taxis ready to take them to around 40 sites that appear in the novels and memoirs of the writer. Included on the tour will be the opportunity to sample the region’s speciality dishes typical and buy local handicrafts.” – Colombia Reports
