pictures from a cruise – part eleven – Cartagena
Our photographer is again on assignment. This time sailing from New York to the Bahamas.
Thematic essays are in the draft stage. These essays are likely to be considered “controversial”. But, we will clear out the remaining photo essays in this series first.
We continue our picture essay series with the stop in Cartagena in Colombia. I think this location is pronounced as “car-ta-hey-na”. (“Hey” with long “A” sound.)
As we have nearly 40 images to share, we will cover this port of call in 2 installments. In this, the first installment, we will share some pics of the harbor and local bird life and some views of the coast. Between these 2 installments, there is a good variety of local images.
This was our photographer’s favorite stop on her cruise and her first time visiting South America.
