Old Town Cartagena

We had a lovely day Friday exploring the Old Town. With its ancient buildings, narrow streets, and flower-covered balconies, Cartagena has an almost European feel to it. As we wandered the streets admiring the architecture and taking photos we were only asked to buy Panama-style hats four times, emeralds three times, and sunglasses five times. When we politely said, "No, Gracias" they left us alone. I guess it was still early so plenty more tourists would be coming later. We enjoyed the Old Town so much we intend to go back again for further explorations.
