Last wrap up from Colombia – the food. It was mostly fried, but quite good. Like everywhere in South America, had every fruit imaginable. We did a street food tour in Bogota that started it off right. We had some fantastic empanadas at a no-name stall, and learned about the various panes. If you are ever in Bogota, the one must do, Andres DC.
Here is a sampling of our two weeks (Bogota, Medellin, Cartagena, and Providencia):
Our first stop in Colombia – heading up the tram. Found food stalls up top.
Our first meal of the trip.
Weird. Plantain, cheese and guava jelly.
Quite a spread

The store front, on main pedestrian street. No address. Good luck finding.
Forget what these are called, but better than they look.

We didn’t eat this. But wonder why everyone in Bogota doesn’t have a heart attack. All fried and meat.
Coffee at top of mountain.
Even the Mc D coffee is legit.
Coffee in Gold Museum. New brew method. Also yum.
