A fisherman prepares his net on a deteriorated pier in Puerto Colombia. This pier was built in 1888 and was used until 1936 as a sea terminal for passengers and cargo heading to and from Barranquilla city. At the time that Puerto Colombia was a major seaport, this was for a while the third longest pier in the world. However, now the pier has become a dilapidated relic. Reuters Photo
