Exploring the Getsami District in Cartagena

The Getsami District, just outside the walls of Cartagena's Old City, is colorful, with a strong sense of cultural identity.  The area has a youthful, art-focused vibe and Forbes has named it one of the coolest neighborhoods in the world.  The area is full of bright Caribbean colors, with block after block of unique street art.  We enter the area and wander.

After a few blocks, we wander into Plazuela de la Santisima Trinidad, with sculptures of independence heroes outside the small church.  The plaza is filled with food hawkers, performers, locals hanging out, and, of course, the odd tourist.
