Virgen del Carmen

On July 16, Colombia and other catholic countries celebrated the Virgin Carmen, the patroness of the sea, sailors, but also conductors, pilots, drivers, etc.

There’s a statute of Virgin Carmen is in the bay, visible from our apartment. On July 16th, I actually went on a day trip to Isla del Sol and on the way back to Cartagena, was able to witness some of the festivities and get an up close and personal look at the statue in the bay.
