Day 248pm – Old Cartagena by night

The balmy nights brings the streets alive with everyone old and young sitting outside on the street chatting, kids kicking soccer balls with bare feet in the local plaza and walking past open front doors with people in their 1920’s havana style rocking chairs playing 60’s bossa novas songs on record players. There is street food everywhere here and we are just mesmerised by the huge sense of community where we are staying in the Getsamani district. Such a vast contrast from the new town on the other side of the harbour where apartment condos 30 stories high have shot up like Miami over the last 5 years.
