Christmas in Cartagena

"The Old City is dressed up for the fiesta of fiestas. Plazas, cafes, palaces, noble homes, museums, and shops are outlined in sparkling white lights. Courtyard restaurants are bathed in candlelight. We stroll 20 minutes from Ithaka, over the bridge, through the clock-tower portico in the 500-year-old colonial Spanish wall surrounding the city, into the labyrinth of antique buildings. Behind enormous wooden doors are lush private gardens. On every street, balconies are draped with flowering vines -- reds, purples and yellows - and from inside wafts the Spanish version of familiar carols. It's Christmas in Cartagena."
