Instagramming Colombia - Uncornered Market
A first look down the lane, Cartagena old town. Steamy, colorful, Caribbean. Founded in 1533 by the Spanish, the town first served as a store for gold, silver and other riches taken from its Latin American colonies before it was all loaded on pirate-dodging ships for home. Cartagena retains much of its colonial look and feel. Unsurprisingly, it's a popular UNESCO site and flush with salsa bars, horse-drawn carriages, colorful balconies, and fruit carts. There's even a creepy mime who follows everyone around under the old town clock tower. via Instagram http://ift.tt/1LUoKjp
