Although I have become a bit of a globetrotter, I am still southern girl at heart, originally from Hueytown, Alabama, USA.

Before moving to Colombia, I volunteered in Mexico and Panama, earned my M.A. in England and traveled around Europe. I officially made Barranquilla, Colombia my "home" in October 2011 when I accepted a job as an English professor at la Universidad del Norte where I continue to teach.

When not working, I enjoy a good cup of tea, a day at the beach, spending time with my partner and two cats, blogging, reading travel journals/travel writing, and traveling any and every chance I get, both in and outside Colombia.

Like most things in Colombia, fruits tend to be regional--that is, they are traditionally found in one region of Colombia more so than in any other or, sometimes, they are truly only found in one region of the country. That being said, on the Caribbean coast of Colombia, there are many fruits juices that may be found in other parts of the country, but are native to and most often associated with the Caribbean coast. In this post, I'd like to introduce you to a few of the traditional fruits here on the Caribbean coast that are used to make juices.
