Back from Colombia

Pony and Trap
Just a few days ago, although it seems much longer amid the darkness and snow of Cleveland, I was sitting outside a bar in Cartagena, drinking rum with fresh lime and plenty of ice, looking out over the Carribean Sea.

We started in Cali for Juan and Susy‘s wedding, a grand and beautiful affair in the Iglesia de la Merced. From there we flew north to the city of Cartagena de Indias, where we wandered the narrow streets of the walled city and visited the 17th century Castillo de San Felipe de Barajas, built to protect the city from English pirates, among others. Finally, it was back to Bogotá for a couple of days to see the Gold Museum and the Plaza de Bolívar before heading home.

I’ve put a few photos from the trip in my gallery, more will appear over the next few days.
