    Day 1.033 – A Convent, a Castle, a Dinner, and Chaplin’s Daughter (UK)

    Phew, that’s a lot of photos for today. No room for words. Gotta put 2+2 together to figure out how the day was. Ernesto, the private chauffeur took me to the Convento de la Popa and the fortress Castillo de San Felipe – both highly recommendable places just outside the city walls of Cartagena.

    The evening photos are from the inauguration of Cartagena’s Int’l Film Festival – where I met (but didn’t speak to) Jane Chaplin, the daughter of the good ol’ Charlie…Funny, that. Like father, like daughter, is all I can say.

    Plus from a delicious and extravagant dinner with Janet at the San Pedro restaurant in a beautiful colonial building in the old part of town. I’m being spoiled like there was no tomorrow here in Cartagena. And I must admit that I could very easily get used to all this… 🙂

    Anyway, here goes my day…
