This was one area that made me a bit upset. Soon after I took this shot,there was man "posing" his son (about 10yrs) next to this. Hanging all over it and making fun,like they were in some silly amusement park! They apparently did not understand the seriousness of this place.
I refuse to pay for photos too. Those women with the fruit on their heads were constantly on the lookout for anyone trying to steal a picture. So whenever I see a pic of Cartagena with those colourful smiling women with a basket of fruit on their heads, I know the picture was paid for.
Dahuffy, I wouldn't call those pictures above the ghetto area. It's where most of the population of Cartagena lives.
