Cartagena de Indios – Picture Perfect

Cartagena is a beautiful town of about a million people on the Caribbean coast of Colombia. Once an important harbour, many people came here during the domestic crisis of the last decades to find peace. Nowadays it is a bustling city of about 1m people as well as (at least the old town) a magnet for tourists. Direct connections to the US make Cartagena the perfect getaway for Americans – on our trip so far in Asian and South America hardly have we seen more of them. Cartagena is colorful and an ideal place to wander around without getting lost… šŸ™‚

Colombians seem to love the colors of their flag! šŸ™‚
Fancy some fruits? Or do you prefer enjoying street art…?
