I am in Cartagena now, but l'm heading out of town - going east to Taganga where I hear the water is clear and the diving/snorkeling is good.

Cali was not my cup of tea (coffee is probably more appropriate, as it is Colombia and the coffee is smooth here.) I found it to be dirty, slummy and loud. So I left the next morning and came here to Cartagena. The old town, surrounded by walls, reminds me of a clean, compact New
Orleans. Every building has balconies covered with flowering tropical plants. It has been a pleasant couple of days, but I have now grown bored with the city life and hope to see other beautiful parts of Colombia. Hard to get too many photos of interesting things in Colombia for some reason. Still, here are a few pics. Craig
