Beneath Colombia's Azure Skies if( @ National Geographic Society Kodachrome by Luis Marden Barranquilla, Colombia Coffee Port, Is Journey's End for a Magdalena River Boat From the heart of the coffee-raising district, this stern-wheeler has come with her brood of heavily laden steel barges. Across the dock, just out of the picture, lie ocean liners, to which the sacks are trans ferred by automatic conveyors and manpower. The pungent odor of the fragrant beans permeates the port. Founded by the Spaniards in 1629, Barranquilla is one year older than Boston, Massachusetts.
