WHOA!!! Fritz The Cat sank!!!
Breaking news, hold the presses! Fritz The Cat, the infamous vessel which ferried us and hordes of other backpackers from Colombia to Panama SANK! That’s right, the catamaran is at the bottom of the Caribbean Sea. Colombian news website El Tiempo has a video in which you can hear the captain, Fritz, yelling in Spanish for rescuers not to take his picture as you see The Cat half-submerged in the blue water. Everyone came out alive, but how rough it must be for those 14 backpackers who lost everything. Here is a link to the video and news article:
Our boat trip seemed pretty crazy, but it’s hard to imagine going through that whole ordeal. Needless to say that it would have ruined our trip. I can’t wait to hear more details about the wreck. I feel like their will be a mention of captain’s error somewhere along the line. They probably hit an iceberg.
