We had our lunch and then boarded the boat to get back to Cartagena ...
... she said that she was just learning English. Spanish was fine, but it requires more concentration, and I know I will not understand some things. She had an accent that made it hard to understand as well.
We walked a short distance to the boat--a large wooden canoe. Manuel was our boat guide and he propelled the boat with a stick--by poling it. We saw three different types of mangrove trees--white, red, and black. Other than they ...
