Healthy Street food on Bogotá’s Ciclovía

Bogotá’s Ciclovía is the weekly event when dozens of city streets are closed off and people take over mile upon mile of open roads for biking, skating, jogging and walking. It's a rare and amazing event which many cities have tried to copy. Why wouldn’t they? It’s such a good idea and without a doubt one of the best ways to get to know and enjoy a city like Bogotá that is normally overrun with cars and traffic. Plus, you can eat everything along the way and get a taste of some of Colombia’s healthiest street food. Here is just a sampling of some of the fruit and food you might see and taste along the way.

My First Carnaval in Colombia

It was February 2009, and within just a few weeks of arriving in Medellin, I forced myself to leave for Carnaval, one of the country's biggest annual celebrations. Billed as the 2nd largest Carnaval celebration after Brazil's parties, I knew it was an event I had to experience firsthand.
