It always amazes me in these times of austerity, you go on holiday to a country that is struggling financially, we see it every day on TV, you visit a beautiful town like Cartagena, plenty of tourists milling around, restaurant everywhere, but you come to see a few things and when you get here, they are closed for ciesta.
OK, lets put this into perspective, height of the tourist season, foreigner visits city, the tourist office in Orihuela costa says is a must, he gets there with high hopes, and it is closed for siesta?
Some say you should respect the local tradition, but how are places like Cartegena supposed to survive when two out of the four places i visit are closed? People have asked me many a time, what i thought of Cartegena, I said, what a lovely city, but it was all closed(in the height of the tourist season), poor show, Cartagena local council.
I am coming back in '13 and you'd better be open.
