As you enter the harbour into Cartagena welcoming you was this statue of the blessed virgin with Christ,
Mary Lou & I arranged for an excursion called " A Taste of Cartagena ". Our excursion leader was a exciting but very thoughtful young man called Bryan who has lived in Cartagena all his life.
Bryan discussed things about the city, the old part of the city and the new.
We stopped to look at the citadel, the old fort.
Back on the bus Bryan told us that we were now going to the old city of Cartagena. Next I will be showing many areas of this old city. Enjoy.
Here I had to stop to find a place to sit down. I had hit over 90 degrees and I was feeling a little ill and Bryan found a couple of chairs and placed them in a tiny street that was cool. It was nice but here there were constant vendors walking around you selling their wares as well vendors standing their things. After awhile I eventually bought a hat. When we first saw Bryan, he had a hat that I liked. Here was the one that I bought.
The colours represent the flag of Colombia.
Lets continue with our view of Cartagena.
There were many young girls dressed in dresses like this one who would stand for you to take a photo but you had to pay. I just took this photo.
There were many scenes that were constructed in towns square. We had a chance to sit down and had a Pepsi.
We were back on the bus going back to the ship. Bryan continues to teach us all about Cartagena. As he talked, I took photos out of the bus,
Time for some lunch. Since we were going here for two days, the second day allowed me some time to spend at pool. Rest friends for now, See ya.
