400th anniversary of the wall

On September 8, 1614, the first stone was laid to build the wall protecting the Old City of Cartagena.

The first stone was laid where Sir Francis Drake had attacked Cartagena in 1586. http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_of_Cartagena_de_Indias_(1586)

No wall walking today, but I did visit the Old City today with our visitor and house guest, Hannah.

**Separate post on that to follow.
