How to describe Mompox?
Mompox is like a snapshot; a village that, once you leave, must cease to continue. It feels like a chapter in a book or a moment in a film, and how can you fail to fall in love with a village that casts you as its protagonist?
You can wheel out all the cliches you want when it comes to Mompox. It is like stepping back in time; it is a sleepy colonial village with beautiful architecture lining the streets at every walk; it is a place to wander, relax and explore at a slow pace. What captures you about Mompox, however, is the atmosphere, which is difficult to describe.
