The Elusive Photos from Cartagena

The port

Sitting on the feet of the statue commemorating all those who have lost their lives to the terrorist group ETA (Spain is actually the only European country with an active terrorist organization)

Statue of Cristobal Colon (a.k.a. Christopher Columbus)...He was a lot of places in Cartagena which leads me to believe that he was either from there or he left from there since it is a port city

This is an oil Channukiah from the 15th century.  There was an exhibit on the Jews from Lorca (a town in Murcia)

The Roman theatre.  There was also a Roman ampitheatre (for gladiators and such things) but it was under renovation so we didn't get to see it.

We then finished off the day with seafood and sitting by the Mediterranean sea.

I hope you enjoyed the pictures!  I'm sorry I couldn't get them up yesterday
