Sunset over Cartagena, Colombia's thriving Boca Grande (Big Mouth) district.
The skyscrapers and multimillion dollar residences a testimony to the country's changing finances and emergence from the dark days of the drug wars. The city has been a dangerous one for generations, first as a focus for Spanish trade as they pillaged the Incan empires. Then, later, a mainstay against the brutality of the Caribbean pirates and European gamesmanship. And finally, and most recently, as the poster child for the war against drugs.
Oh, and a well-known appearance in the 1984 romantic comedy, Romancing the Stone.
A lot yet to do, it's abundantly clear that Cartagena, at least, is loving its new, and safer, prosperity.
