Day 10 - Cartagena de los Indios
After the exciting day transiting the Panama Canal, we were unprepared for the excitement and beauty of our port day in Cartagena de los Indios, Colombia.

Ft. San Felipe protected Cartagena from pirate attack. Cartagena was Spain's "Fort Knox" as Spain looted the treasures of the Maya, Aztec, and Inca civilizations, and thus pirates made Cartagena their prime target
