COLOMBIA EN LA NOCHE
the streets are alive at night . . .
holiday lights, inside and out,
musicians and vendors,
fresh hot food on every street;
(Colombians love to eat through the night.)
Corn-on-the-cob con queso, hot off the grill . . .
fried empanadas and chicharron (pork skins) . . .
bowls of fresh limes, raw coconut and
sweet uchuvas (goose berries).
And it's not uncommon to find a crowd gathered
to listen to tales of days-gone-by
from veteranos sabios (wise old timers).
The nights are alive in Colombia.
