I went to northern Colombia for a few weeks in late May.  I was  doing some work at one of the largest coal mines in the world close to the Venezuela border.  This was my first time to Colombia so I took some holidays after the work was done and spent a few days in Cartagena, an old city on the Carribean Sea.  It's a beautiful city with beaches and an old fortified historic city centre.  Really amazing.  I also spent a day in Bogota touring the city with a friend.  Thank you Nathalia!

I hope you like the pics.  ♦

Chawki,

Thank you for sharing the pictures of my country with me. Great job with the panorama pictures; they are amazing. I am glad you had a good time in Colombia, and I hope one day you, me and Isa can visit it together.

I will stay tuned for another wonderful session of pictures from your next trip.

Always wanted to visit Colombia (along with most of South America!). I hear Castillo de San Felipe is pretty impressive.

The one w/ the man and the caps for sale reminds me of the book "Caps for Sale" and he says, "Caps for sale. 50-cents a cap."

Hola Chawki,
muy bonitas tus imagenes de Colombia, estuve por allá en el año 1996 (en Bogotá, mina Cerro Matoso y Cartagena), todo me impresionó mucho, sobre todo la estancia en Cartagena. En aquel entonces la Habana vieja se caia toda en pedazos, pero hoy, con la restauración se parece mucho a la parte vieja de Cartagena, tengo fotos recientes de esa zona de la Habana te las puedo enviar, chao, un abrazo.
