Eva Laura Siegel

I´m a 27-year-old public health researcher in the area of HIV/STIs originally from San Francisco, California.

In 2008 I moved to Buenos Aires, Argentina on more or less of a whim, and since then I´ve lived in Cali, Colombia and Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, which is where I currently write from.

When I´m not talking to people about their sex lives, I read far too many articles online, do a lot of ill-recommended cooking experiments, wander around the city, and go to music and dance stuff.

Santa Marta Eats + Arepa de Huevo


Though I thoroughly enjoyed Santa Marta’s beaches and historical sights, let’s not pretend that one of my favorite things about my trip to Santa Marta wasn’t the eating part. Food is way up there on my list of reasons to travel, and Santa Marta has lots of great things both to eat and drink.

Taironaka


Tayrona Park in Santa Marta derives its name from the indigenous people, the Taironas, who have lived in its mountains for centuries. I don’t need to tell you what the Spanish conquest did to their population, I’m sure you know how that same old awful story goes, but many of their descendants continue to live in the region.

Santa Marta City


You might think that after my time in Tayrona it’d be a bit of a downer to go back to the city, but frankly, though I loved the park I wasn’t at all disappointed because Santa Marta is a pretty charming place to “have” to come back to.
