Cartagena, Europas Kartago





Scenes from the harbor area.




The city center.




The old Roman city is under the ground.




Mari Boine was also one of the artist performing at Månefestivalen in Fredrikstad this weekend.





The Roman harbor .... now in the middle of the new city.

Some birds

Rea Silvia


The roman theatre, Harald and I are studying the craftwork.




I am fascinated by steps....




Behind these wall there is the basement of the theatre.




Flowers turning to the sun...




Typical, local tapas served.




I have no energy go shopping new paint in this heat, instead I made a digital wall painting on the free surfaces.
