Donkey Crossing

Welcome to Donkey Crossing! Donkey Crossing is an on-line account of one Limey and one Yank living one Dream. From September 2006 until the end of 2007, we plan to visit friends and family on five continents and immerse ourselves into various cultures, natural phenomena and ways of life. We hope you enjoy our tales and visit often! Cheers, Jason and Rachel Napoli

A FEW MORE MEMORABLE PHOTOS FROM COLOMBIA After reviewing our latest blog entry we decided more photos needed to be shared from our Colombian experience, particularly of Cartagena. The photo above is from the first plaza you encounter whilst entering El Centro. It's often filled with busking musicians, con-artist money changers and struggling salesmen selling pirated Colombian football jerseys. We succeeded in purchasing a Cerveza Aguila t-shirt and dining on a veggie lunch at the Hare Krishna restaurant located on the second floor of an "American Fried Chicken" restaurant (ironic?) on our first afternoon. This plaza is a lovely introduction to the bustle and beauty of Cartagena.
The photo below is an action shot of Rachel and Adam catching a groove on our chiva. I believe our bottle of rum was getting down to just a few drops and our maracas were on auto-pilot.

Here are a couple dudes we encountered on the beach back in Taganga. Yeah mon!
The following two photos are from the day trip we took on our last day in Colombia. The first one is from the local fish market, while the second one shows that we truly did visit the bubbling Totumo mud volcano. It was by far one of the most bizarre experiences of my life and certainly needs to be added to everyone's "list".
I like to call the next photo:
Two Bellies and A Babe

Here's a photo of Adam and I standing guard on the walled perimeter of Cartagena. In the past, the city had been attacked by Spanish, British and French warships. I think this defense mechanism will deter all future attacks.

And now we leave you with three final photos which grasp the true beauty of what may be one of our world's most beautiful cities.
