Cartagena, Colombia's architecture, culture, history and people define this old fortressed city. I walk past the home of Gabriel García Márquez, dreaming of Love in the Time of Cholera. The summer heat is all consuming as I travel down the narrow, winding cobblestone streets seeking my own inspiration. Casa no. 3, a small home on a side street, captures my attention. The front door's design, color and vintage lion knocker tell me without entering that someone of importance to this community, someone with standing, someone with style, lived here hundreds of years ago. But among an array of colorful doors with elaborate knockers, this door is not seeking to be noticed. Only those who travel their own path would ever find and experience its classic beauty. Here, at Casa no. 3, I have found the inspiration for Sandra Cadavid.
