I made some friends at the Colombian Independence Day Festival and they invited me to lunch the other day. I haven’t had real Latin American food since leaving Miami so I can’t tell you how happy I was to eat real Colombian home cooking - Sancocho Tolimense!
The salad was simple but delicious. Mixed greens, vinaigrette dressing and… avocados. I love avocados :)
After the meal I was challenge to a boxing match on the Nintendo Wii.
I tried my best but I had no chance against the home team.
I took a beating in baseball, bowling and boxing… but I managed to walk away with a single victory. We had a good time and I look forward to hanging out with my Colombian friends again.
Gracias por su hospitalidad!!
