Zipaquirá and Chorizo

Curuba, a bitter fruit, and almojabanas, like a cheese-filled arepa.

Tamale, wrapped in banana leaves instead of corn husks.

Ads are everywhere!

...and so are cows.

Cathy driving.

Strange children's historical amusement park, kinda like Medieval Times.

Colombia has suffered from a lot of rain this year, thus lots of flooding and landslides.

Heading into the town of Zipaquirá.

The Catedral de Sal de Zipaquirá (aka The Salt Cathedral). The largest underground Catholic church, located in a salt mine.

Our overly enthusiastic guide.


Impressive engineering, but not impressed by the neon lights.

Priest's salt locker.

Nice poem for the miners.

Tacky, with improper Spanish.

Where New York City's Valentine's Day roses come from.

Santi, Juan Ca and José Pablo.

Family photo.

At Plaza de Andrés, part of the popular Andrés Carne de Res restaurant. It was designed to mimic a typical market: here hang totumos, used for drinking.

My guidebook says, "a hangover from aguardiente will make you lose the will to live". Read that a few days too late.

José Pablo and Angela.

Chorizo, Morcilla and arepas.

At Andrés.

Para papá.
