...where I explored Old Town Cartegena, on foot, with camera. Later on, Kimber and I did it again.

I bailed on the bus tour that went up to San Felipe...probably a good thing, since I would have wanted to wander around for a couple of hours.

Thanks, Kimber! Most of these came from when we wandered around together.

There were LOTS of people crowded in here. I have no idea what it was. I saw lots of people go in, and nobody come out. Scary. Or, opening time. Heck, maybe it's WalMart.

Waiting for the night life. That's probably the clock tower in the background.

Oh, what he'd pay for a 12-foot long board! Wait, that's it there, down at the bottom.

Map of old town Cartegena, at the entrance to the Naval Museum. So much better than any I found.

Let me out! I wanna bite someone! Not the smartest pup around, I'd guess. Door is open! Go for it!

I'm somewhat disturbed that this guys right paw has red nails.

All Kimber here. Could a guy have gotten this? OK, probably, since they were quite excited about seeing the previews on the cameras.

This one, though.... A bat of the eye, and he was skating.

Aside from the colors, this is the CHINESE FOOD place! I wasn't hungry.

Balconies. Not that they're rare here....



Canon EOS 40D with Sigma 18-200mm f/3.5-6.3 DC OS at 28.0 mm; 1/40 sec, f/4.6, ISO 500
Colors! Patterns! I could have spent an hour in here, so I didn't even bother going in.

That's the legendary Mrs. Gore there. I liked the orange-into-yellow colors, but couldn't get rid of the people.

Brickwork. Good, bad or....well aged.

Canon EOS 40D with Sigma 18-200mm f/3.5-6.3 DC OS at 40.0 mm; 1/500 sec, f/5.0, ISO 100
And the sky. Yawn. (Heck, if we didn't just see the moon, this would be great!)

On the top, we've got the mystery green tree. On the bottom, "American Broasted Chicken". I'll bet very, very good, and very bad for you.

Meeting my stereotype, tables for the elite, and us peasants were barracaded from the initial festivities. The elite of Cartegena party down. Or just sit there.

Nevertheless, a huge turnout. There's a fence keeping the scum out.
