    Food & Drinks Part II

    December 8, 2018 in Colombia ⋅ ☀️ 30 °C

    Here a few culinary-photographs:
    1.) drinking a super yummy lemonade, made out of coconut water and lemongrass in Cusco, Peru (will definitely try to recreate it at home)
    2.) eating churros - what can I say? You can tell by my happy face!
    3.) eating trucha („Forelle“) with lots of garlic - I was kinda smelly for 2 days and had some stomach problems after, but it was worth it, haha!
    4.) trying „obleas“ in Guatape for the first time, a kind of waffle with Marmelade, Karamell, honey and.... cheese - we bought it from the cutest old lady ever, we liked her, but not the oblea.
    5.) did you recognize it? SPÄTZLE! KÄSSPÄTZLE! We missed it so much, we had to cook it.
    6.) Chontadura - a fruit, which tastes like a mix between pumpkin and potato, usually eaten with salt or in an empanada, super yummy!

    Reconnaissance for the Carnival

    February 7, 2018 in Colombia ⋅ 🌙 26 °C

    After settling the stay issue, we decided to go to Via 40, the main road where the carnival was supposed to take place starting the next day. We just wanted to have a feel of things, just to get an idea about how the stalls are going to be, if there were shops or food stalls nearby etc. The Via 40 was about a km walk and it was quite dark by the time we reached there. A lot of workers were busy building up temporary stalls for viewing of the parade. There were no information brochures or anything. There was not much to do there, so we walked around in the area nearby. The houses had been decked up with carnival figures and buntings. The whole town seemed to be getting ready for the multiple day party. After walking around for a while, we went back to our hostels for an early night.Read more

    Start of the party time

    February 7, 2018 in Colombia ⋅ 🌙 24 °C

    Back at the hostel, I was preparing to sleep when Brian our 24 year old owner of the hostel came over and offered to take me along with the rest of the people at the hostel to a club where they were having the carnival pre-party. We packed ourselves in his car and went to the Michaelangelo club. It was a fun night out. There were people wearing costumes and dancing to the loud beats of the latino music. I also got introduced to all the inmates of the hostel while we danced together. We returned back at 1 am. So much for an early night 😁😁Read more
