A warm Sunday in the Carribean… the perfect opportunity to catch up with friends and family over Skype! After breakfast we did a short walk to the ‘Castillo San Felipe de Barajas‘, a fortress built in the 1500’s to protect the city.
We tried to stay out of the sun as much as possible, with but the sun right over our heads that was not so easy!
We stopped at a large sculpture of a pair of old shoes, based on the poem “A Mi Ciudad Nativa” by Colombian-born poet Luis Carlos Lopez, where he compares his fondness of Cartagena to his love for an old pair of shoes.
The rest of the day we spent checking Marine Traffic to see when the Seaboard Pride would pick up our container and head to Cartagena.
Being too hot to go outside we spent the entire afternoon in the hostel’s air conditioning. Hopefully the boat will arrive soon so we can get the paperwork started. Sunday evening the ship had docked in Colon, but the container was not loaded yet.
