Colombia's got lots of great fruits and street foods. And January happens to be a great month for street fruit, when vendors roll out carts piled high with mangostinos, pitayas, chantaduros and other great fruits.
Carts near the Museo de Oro offer mangostinos, mamonsillos, pitayas and anons.
Watermelon and guanabana juice on the Plaza San Victorino.
Chantaduro, a dry-tasting fruit from the coast and supposed to be aphrodisiac.
A load of mangostinos, with cherries behind them.
Mangostinos resemble garlic inside, but taste like candy.
Pitayas, Colombia's version of the fruit known in Vietnam as dragon fruit.
