BOGOTÁ HUSTLE & FLOW
Bogotá's action is definitely in the streets
with virtually every kind of business
straight from the vendor . . .
from Colombian emeralds to tropical fruits,
to a "game of chance" . . . but caveat emptor!
Locally mined gems, handcrafted jewelry,
woven bags and baskets from remote Indian tribes,
card games and dice games (if you dare) . . .
armed guards standing at ATMs.
Fresh street food is the "best bet" --
juice carts to refresh you
with the sweetest mango and pineapple spears,
giant grapes by the bunch, fresh cut coconut,
and wonderful mamoncillos to peel and eat
while you walk, while you shop.
Bogotá streets are a feast for the senses.
