Hello lovely T-gang!
We have just come back from a few days away in our campervan. We went to a place called Cartagena, about two and a half hours drive from here. Cartagena is an ancient harbour town. Even before Roman times it was an important city. Of course we went to see the Roman theater (see Friday's blog). Here is a view of the theater.
This is the harbour front:
There are lots of sculptures to be found. This one was fun:
This fellow was huge. I should have stood next to him for comparison. I could just about reach his elbow. (We called him Gulliver).
I think this is a sailor enjoying some shore leave.
I found some street art too.
I couldn't get near this one. There was a fence erected in front of it (with photos on it).
This could be a soldier. (He has a different uniform to the previous chap). He looks very pensive.
Now it wouldn't be T for Tuesday if it hadn't a drink in ti. Elisabeth and Bluebeard invite us to join with a drink. This is a very special drink. It is the speciality coffee that Cartagena is known for: Cafe asiatico.
This is how it's made:
It was very yummy.
Now let's not forget my postcard for the day:
It comes from Taiwan. This eroded rock is called The Queen's Head. They say it resembles queen Elizabeth's head on the British stamps.
I hope our T-Day queen, Elizabeth, is feeling a bit better today. She has been feeling pretty rough lately.
That is all from me today. I hope you enjoyed a little bit of Cartagena.
Happy T-Day all.
