Or is this Ancient and Modern!?

Or is this Ancient and Modern!?

We are now in Cartagena which is totally stunning.   We came into the city via the northern passage and are now anchored within a stone’s throw of Plaza San Pedro Claver.  We have cycled miles around the old town and all the way out to the furthest reaches of the Boca Grande skyscrapers.  James has participated in a yacht race sponsored by Coors (see photo!) and we have been entertained by Club Pesca who are providing shower, dinghy dock, fuel and water facilities and WiFi.    Cartagena is not only historically fascinating it is also where you can find some of the finest emeralds in the world - and yes, Claire has been treated!   It is perhaps a blessing for James that our stay here is only a very short one!
