On Saturday, Walter and Carmen took us to the countryside to a favourite holiday town for the Colombians called Guatape . It was three hours in the car. We have been staying with Walter’s aunts who are very welcoming. Guatape is very famous for its colourful houses that have paintings on them called ‘zocalos’ and a huge rock called El Peñol .
A typical Colombian lunch with bean stew (frijoles), rice (arroz), avocado (aguacate), pork crackling (chicharron) and arepa (maiz flour pattie).
