Cartegena – Collecting Dorsal

Dorsal is what the Spanish call the race number you pin to your vest. The plan was to collect the numbers and vests (you get two technical T-shirts) and then go for lunch at a little restaurant we know in a pretty bay just outside Cartegena. Number collection was from El Corte Inglés in Cartegena was very efficient with the army (organisers) completely on the ball.

Based on the edge of the sea, it’s ideal for boats to bring in the gas, oil and other necessary essentials to keep the power on.

The narrow road led us to the top of the mountain giving us lovely views all round.

We found our way back to the main road network and headed off to Espacio Mediterraneo to have lunch and do a little shopping.
