Cartagena, Colombia

Cartagena, how do I love thee? Let me count the ways.

I love your pink sunsets and blue walls, your orange fruits and green drinks. I love your sleepy chihuahuas and your sidewalk cafes, your rows and rows of jewellery for sale. I love your limonada and sweet coffee for purchase while pigeons fight for pieces of corn scattered by tourists. I love your smiles and your handshakes, your cold beers and your humid nights. I love your music that greets me at every corner, the art that covers your streets, your night sky full of stars and laughter.

    Great pics! Columbia is at the top of my list of places to visit next. It looks so much like a couple of my other most favorite places – Cuba and the state of Bahia in Brazil!
