I'm sorting, sorting, sorting.
I've got about 2,000 pictures burned onto discs -
from my old-now-wiped-and-given-away desktop -
and want to leave as many discs behind as possible...
so one of my projects has been to load them onto my laptop
and then go through and delete all but my favorites.
These pictures were taken the first time we visited Colombia...
before moving here a little over three years ago.
They're of old town Cartagena...
which in it's own way...
is very beautiful.
Remember the movie, "Romancing the Stone"?
It was filmed partially in Cartagena.
Michael Douglas dove off the wall surrounding the old city
to wrestle the crocodile that swallowed the huge emerald.
if he dove off the real wall...
he would've hit concrete.
It IS a beautiful city
and I would encourage you to visit.
Just don't wear any nice jewelry
or carry much money
or important documents
And the Hotel 3 Banderas,
where we stayed...
BUT when you venture out...
DON'T look the street vendors in the eye
unless you want them to follow you for the next hour
begging you to buy their wares.
