Our arrival in Cartagena was on a beautiful Saturday morning and we were greeted with music and cheering. Turned out it had nothing to do with our boat of course - it was their annual 50km (50!) run to all five forts around the city. Given the fact that the forts are all on hilltops this is one heck of a race. They deserved every cheer they got!

|I would not want to climb this
|Really don't want to run it!
|This one isn't so bad...
talked the guide into letting Chris climb a sketchy rope so he could jump into the water.
Back in the city center we saw pretty architecture.

|Typical street - clean, pleasant
Next stop - Mallorca (or Majorca depending on your native language).
