Yesterday and last evening were incredible. Cartagena is a blast. Minus some of the modern amenities, it feels like we went back in time about 300 years. Some of the buildings have been here that long.
This is a beautifully maintained colonial city with pastel colored buildings and narrow stones streets and bougainvillea draping over second story balconies. The old city is protected by a stone wall to protect it from pirates, the English, and other countries.
Last night was magical. The streets were filled with people and we had dinner in a wonderful restaurant with live music. Santa semana (holy week) is a big deal down here and many people travel and clearly a lot of them came to Cartagena!
Really incredible evening!
