The main reason we’ve all come to Colombia is for a wedding.
When we heard that the pre-wedding celebrations involved our friend, Christo, having to serenade his bride this only sweetened the deal.
We excitedly gathered at the bride’s family home in Bogota to take in a traditional serenato complete with a full mariachi band and a South African twist of karaoke. Needless to say it was an extremely festive evening.
With the formal celebrations out of the way, a challenge was laid down to the South African contingent regarding Agardiente. This is Colombia’s national drink tasting predominantly of aniseed and comprising of loads of sugar and a lethal alcohol percentage. We’re never ones to turn down a challenge. We also dominated the karaoke machine. I’m not saying the latter is purely because of the former but I suspect it definitely helped!
