Joanne and I had an opportunity to visit Columbia and stay in the beautiful city of Cartagena. Our host was, Carmen, an exchange student from Joanne’s high school days. Carmen is now a trial attorney and her husband, Mauricio, is a retired admiral from the Colombian navy. They graciously provided an apartment for us right on the Caribbean Sea.
Cartagena is a mix of the old walled city and a very modern downtown. There will be more to follow from our visit, but here is a start.
