Cartagena market

Cartagena market scene
The produce/meat/fish market in Cartagena was far from the "old town."  It was a chaotic place (and definitely NOT on the normal tourist map either).

But, we're always interested in visiting traditional market places so we headed there in an ancient taxi, and were dropped off next to a garbage-strewn, but pelican-rich salt marsh across from the market.

An unusual Carribean mix of vegetables at a small vendor


Another unusual mix --peppers, yard-long beans, and winter squash - NOT the usual in Colombia
Fresh fish for breakfast was offered up by vendors - my gardening companion loved his.  I didn't want to risk it (being WAY too cautious).

Please share your thoughts with me. I always enjoy hearing from fellow gardeners and nature observers of all sorts, as well as whomever else drops by.
