Recommendations for Mumbai

Recommended Posts

The photography tour in Cartagena is very authentic.  We were taken into the Art District which was a no go area (and I suspect parts still are). Our guide for that part of the tour was a community leader who used to run one of the gangs. The income from the tours goes to the community fund which is using art and sport to help everyone realise other ways of living. 

We met some shadier characters along the way, all new our guide and he was able both to reassure us but also them during the trip. 

I know what you mean about taking over but this was one trip where the cruiseline or their local agent working with the community seemed a win win situation and it could be a useful benchmark for other similar cultural discoveries 

 

These two were real characters

I was just thinking Spain did not look like this the last time we visited ! 

 

uktog's post will doubtless be from Cartagena, a port city on Colombia’s Caribbean coast, not Cartagena, Spain.

I did actually realise that, I was being ironic.
