An American Abroad

Cartagena 2008: Street Scenes 1

In the fall of 2008, I traveled to Cartagena, Colombia. I found a city that was a delightful mix of Caribbean, Spanish colonial, and South American architecture. There was a riot of vivid colors in the old city, which has been wisely protected from modern development by the establishment of a modern city, Boca Grande, several miles out of town.

I recently dug out the photos I took on that trip; I hope Cartagena still looks like it did seven years ago.
