Day thirteen backblipped

Another beautiful city and a huge surprise. From the moment we cruised into the harbour and saw the striking buildings and parks we were captivated, and that feeling didn’t change throughout the day.

A trip up to the fort and monastry gave us a view over the city and the islands, then we had time to wander around the old Colonial walled city – another UNESCO heritage site. Gorgeous buildings surround several town squares, plenty of flowers and bright colours, street entertainers and art works. I was particularly impressed with several ironwork sculptures in the streets …….. and the feeling of being safe – which we did not expect in Colombia.
