Colombia: Cartagena and the never ending bloody fiesta!

Hurray for Fiesta and new Colombian friends! They really know how to party here – it goes on all day and all night, blaring music, flour/paint/water bombs, getting sprayed with crazy foam and random buckets of water lobbed from overhead balconies….usually over me for some reason. I reckon Dave’s paying them…especially in the evening when we are walking to the bloody restaurant!

Dave got totally flour bombed and a local guy gave him a jaunty hat to complete his new……. and happier look….ha ha ha!
The sea walls were packed with people waiting for the second major parade of the week long fiesta; this time the Beauty Queens from each major town/city of Colombia paraded by on floats. I couldn’t really get close enough to take photos but to be honest it was the same people as teh Tuesday parade!
