Arrived in Cartagena at 9 am. And took a taxi to the old district but finding a room was not easy as the locals still have holidays. When we did get a room it was very primitive and so small that there was hardly room for the backpack, and also very noisy. So next morning we found a better hotel with good WiFi and also when we get the Blue Wonder we can park here and sleep in the camper for a few dollars. Cartagena is a very nice city and Old Town is wonderful it is often described as Cartagena the Beautiful or Cartagena the Proud One. So very different from what we have seen so far
And every time I go there I discover new things.
