Just got back from a vacation to Cartagena. What a great trip. I figured some folks here would find this interesting so I thought I'd share. I'll try to keep it short and let the pictures do the talking.
One of the highlights of the trip was chasing down a game somewhere in Cartagena. I knew going down there, their winter leagues at the stadium were not going on. However, I had read about street ball leagues that play on Sundays (for many their only day off) and was hoping to catch a game or two. So, on Sunday after desayuno and cafe colombianos we were off and determined to find a game. After a bit of walking (and a lot of sweating) we found the street that was supposed to be closed off, but apparently those leagues were out of season as well.
After asking a guy across the street that was supposed to be closed off "donde esta beisbol?" we were off to find another game supposedly across the way. Eventually, after a lot more walking and a lot more sweating (Pro tip: it is hot near the equator) we found a rocky dusty field with the Castillo San Felipe in the backdrop.
