Betty Morgan shares this memory with us -
When Jack was VP south, we had a great trip to South America (Colombia) and were wined and dined at Bogota, Cartagena, Baranquilla, etc. along the coast and even saw a yacht from Vancouver with the Canadian flag when we were on a boat cruise. We called to them and had a chat!
That was in 1970 when Peter Moreira (?) and his wife Mary were there hosting. Peter had a flat tire on his way to pick us up for dinner and was in a sweat when he got to us. What a lovely couple. We had a wonderful time with them. They forced me to take the funicular up the side of a mountain where the cows grazed on their knees and braced themselves with their hind legs while they ate.
One false move and they would tumble down the mountain.
I do hope that Cartagena is more ready for tourists than it was in 1970! Weather was good, though. The food was not very good.
