My cousin posted these photos of some event that took place in Colombia in mid August. I don't know if this girl is my cousin (:-)) but I KNOW that is my aunt on the left. She is the spitting image of my Mom but a blue eyed blonde version of my dark Mom! I want you to see the clothes. It is so interesting.
I think one of these or more are related to me. Just look at their clothes. They are a musical group.
Another girl in the mix.
The rest of these pictures are taken by my other cousin. Same family. He and his wife went to visit. Out of 16 kids, my Mom and her older brother are the only ones that settled in America. The rest are in Colombia.
This is a typical meal.
Fish with rice and platanos or green bananas and yes they sell this here!
This is a staple of the Colombian diet. Chicharron. It is fried pork skins. I know, 7aram!!
Here is a typical house.
Another popular meal. We like our avocados, rice and arepas!
That is my cuz Andre so his wifey took this.
I think I will be making an art quilt using this picture.
Thanks for stopping by and seeing a little bit of my birthplace. It is a beautiful country.
edited to add one more picture:
This building is so charming and in such a pretty shade of yellow!
