Cartagena and a bit of local birding

April 1, 2015 // 1 Comment

We landed in Cartagena Sunday morning and are completely smitten with the old city. For us, it has the charm and history of Trinidad (Cuba) and Granada (Nicaragua) with a great mix of music, culture, good food, and it is simply as picturesque as could be.
