I am elated to announce the new feature LAMA VISITS where Christine, founder of LAMA blog and designs, extends her Visual Vacations and takes us through her favorite retreats in South America. Hurray! Let's give her a warm welcome and thank her for giving us vivid inspiration to get out and explore. Her first guided tour is through fashion designer Silvia Tcherassi's eponymous hotel, a 250-year-old Colonial mansion in Cartagena de Indias, Colombia that has been lovingly restored into a relaxing escape complete with private terraces, azure pools and Vera Restaurant, the hotel's eatery with vertical gardens, stone walls and headed by Mario Batali protege Daniel Castaño.
