Street life

cartegena walk

Whenever I hear “Cartagena,” I think of Kathleen Turner sliding down a muddy hill in a Colombian jungle in “Romancing the Stone.”

I couldn’t get my Beloved and my Adored stepson to actually watch the 1984 movie before we left on our cruise last week, but I did manage to avoid any jungle disasters. We walked the streets of Cartagena, Colombia  — our first port of call and enjoyed the street life and architecture of Old City, the walled colonial city on the coast of the Caribbean Sea.

Nine days. Ten trips through metal detectors. Five countries. One glass of ice cubes I should have avoided. Ninety degrees almost every day. Great vacation.

“You’re the best time I’ve ever had.”
