dancing in the rain

Our highlight from this year's Semana Santa was stumbled upon by pure chance when simply trying to escape the weather.

When the heavens opened, the entire street filed into a large courtyard where the walls were lined with stalls selling fresh coffee, sweets and aguardiente. However, everyone's attention was directed to the centre where, thanks a to break in the downpour, a group of young performers began to dance.

Today was a day to celebrate Colombia's indigenous roots and we had arrived right on time to to experience Africa's influence through song and dance.
