Today, we'll travel to Colombia!
It was March of 2016 when we traveled to Colombia. The Zika virus was the issue then. Yup, another virus, so we were armed with long sleeves, mosquito face coverings and insect repellents.
We thought spring time would be best in terms of weather, but boy, we were so wrong. Cartagena felt sweltering and hot in the month of March.
Below are some photos I took during our Cartagena adventure:
Castillo San Felipe de Barajas is a fortress in the city. It is located in the Hill of San Lazaro, dominating approaches to the city by land or sea.
Las Bovedas was built to house dungeons, but these days, it now hosts shops and boutiques. A good place to shop for good Colombian coffee.
The Palace of the Inquisition is the 18th century seat of the Holy Office of the Inquisition. It now serves as a museum showcasing historical artifacts including torture equipment used on victims on during the inquisition.
Plaza San Pedro Claver is a great place to walk around. This is the place where I finally got my fill of green mangoes with salt.
