|It's a sunny and bright day here in the Andes.|
|Not sure where he was headed. But|
he was the only rider I saw this
|Doctora in the yellow, I have my head down to make leaves,|
and Norma made the most of anyone. We will be ready.
|Pedro Gomez-Montanez, 6, (wearing|
the helmet)was the winner in his division
in the Barichara youth biking races.
|The Giant Watering Pot|
Also, it turns out that one of my acquaintances here, who lives right across the street from the night-time hot spot, The Mirador, is desperate for a good night's sleep. She is willing to put up with two cats and have a sleeping bag on an inflatable mat if it will give her some distance from the booming music that practically shakes the dirt out of the rafters.
So I think my night may be an early one, meaning I won't make it up to the fairgrounds to see the dancing tonight. Shucks.
|The 13 candidates being trucked past the Parque today.|
It sounds like a Karioke event from the several blocks away where I am. Whoever is singing is doing it off-key although the background music appears to be OK. Perhaps they have turned a simple walk down the aisle to a talent show, where 14 teen-aged Colombian rural girls have their go at the limelight.
|One of the bands going past the judge's viewpoint.|
|The main park is to the left, the judges are on the second floor of the|
building to the right. You can see a bus waiting to take people to San Gil
just beyond the band group. Not much stops the busses.
|The Andes were getting rain this afternoon and it arrived later tonight in|
the village. I love these colors, but it is unstable earth, even if there are
rocks in it. That is why trees are so critical in Colombia.
