We just finished our first visit to Cartagena de Indias in Colombia.
Here's a small sample of the pictures we took there.
To prevent a huge post, I have divided the photos into two posts: Night Images and Day Images.
The houses and city colors are a photographer's delight especially in the afternoon.
