First full day in Cartagena  
Today was our first full day in Cartegna. Did I mention that it's hot here? We had a half-day tour where we started by driving around the new town. We headed to the Fortress of San Felipe, built by the Spanish during the colonial era and located on the hill of San Lorenzo. Then we took a drive down to the old town and walked around the colorful streets and winding alleyways of the area. Lots of shopping and little things to see! We also went to the Emerald museum where we learned about emeralds, but didn't buy any. The rest of the day was spent sitting by the pool and exploring the area. The celebrate the evening we ordered room service and are going to plat bananagrams.
