It’s been a little over a year since we put our idea of a blog to action and exactly one year since our first blog post.
I enjoyed recapping my most memorable eats of 2014, and to start a new tradition, I've looked back at this past year to once again record them...
Colombia - the land of corn, coffee, fruit, fútbol and friendly people. We were fortunate enough to experience a little bit of it all even while spending most of our time in one city: Bogotá. A few days of cold rain at the start of our trip meant taking Ubers everywhere, but the sun and warmth on our last few days meant spontaneous stops for buttery arepas from street vendors or tasty coffee at outdoor coffee shops.
Close your eyes, think New York. Images you might conjure up may include hot dogs and skyscrapers, and if you've been keeping up with the times, bicycles and beards in Brooklyn. When I think back to our vacation in Bogotá, I think of fog (does he have a name?), hills, arepas and... fruits! You can't walk a block in Bogotá without encountering a fruit stand, or (more likely) a jugo — juice — vendor.
Meet Ivan López, the talented barista at Amor Perfecto in Bogotá, where we started our mornings and often, our evenings.
