It’s Coaching Weekend in Newport, RI. Horse drawn carriages from the 19C will grace the streets of Newport and the historic mansion grounds throughout the weekend. #NautiNewport tip: take the backroads if you want to avoid traffic. 🙄🙈 #nauti_newport #history #historic #newport @dscvrnewport #summer #nauti #getnauti #coach #giddyup #thegildedage #bellevue #mansion #summertime

Conoce un poco de su historia aquí: 👇

Originarias del corregimiento de San Basilio de Palenque, Bolívar, las “Palenqueras de Cartagena” son esas hermosas mujeres que deambulan por las extensas franjas de tierra del Caribe Colombiano, con sus enormes sonrisas, vestidas de arco iris y un menú de los más exóticos frutos característicos de nuestra tierra. Llevan con orgullo en su sangre las raíces africanas y antojan a los transeúntes con una exquisita mezcla de sabores, gustos y colores, representados en frutas como mangos, bananos, sandías, piñas y papayas que llevan sobre su cabeza. Con sus coloridos vestidos y mirada penetrante, inspiran a su paso a propios y extraños que rápidamente las identifican por su amabilidad, frescura y alegría propias de la cultura afrocolombiana. Se las conoce como “Palenqueras”. Fuente: Colombiamania.com

Notable historians #MommyandFatty and I walking the battlefield that saved the country. We are at Monocacy in Maryland. This battle was a southern win but delayed Confederate forces long enough for the Union to support forces in Washington DC which would have been overwhelmed. This is where Lee's famous Lost Order 191 fell on the field giving the Union his plan of attack. #CivilWar #USA #history #culture #Maryland #MonocacyBattlefield #war #travel #roadtrip
