If I had taken a cab back last night I would have missed all this. Colonial streets in La Candelaria, more parks, funky little buildings and restaurants, and the last photo of flower shops at desk. Beautiful.
I picked up some lightly fried, fresh coconut on the way back from a street stall. COP$2,000. About 75 cents. The Colombian peso is at present nearly 3,000 to the dollar. I ordered some from my bank at home and when I went to pick it up a couple weeks ago two bankers were counting it out. It looked like a drug deal! Had to photo-document it. Hysterical. Back to the fried coconut, try it if you have a chance.
