A few weeks ago, Vincent Ventura (literacy consultant) came to Cartagena to visit and consult us on our balanced literacy practice. While he was here, I finally went to La Popa to over look the city. It is defenitly a different side of Cartagena that I do not see everyday. It is amazing how sheltered you can feel in such a large city.
The monistery at the top is beautiful as well!
This just reminds me that there are always new places to see and go. Often times I feel like I have seen the city until I go to places like this. Let the exploring begin!
This last picture is the community of La Popa walking up to the church for Sunday night Mass. I have never been a church goer, but it gave me goosebumps to see the sense of community and love that these people showed.
