#342 Colombian BBQ & Sombrero Vueltiao | 哥伦比亚烧烤 & 宽檐帽

in ntopaz •  8 months ago  (edited)


Greetings everyone! Have you ever tried Colombian style BBQ? When I traveled through the country, I found this delicious treat pretty common as street food, and it's also enjoyed at local homes or as picnics. They usually grill potatoes, meat, plantains, corn... and the ubiquitous arepas of course! So I devoured the bbq every time when I caught it on the street or in a restaurant. I was even invited by some local families to eat with them when I walked past their yards. Oh how I love Colombia (and solo travels as well)! =)

I saw the man making bbq in Zipaquirá, close to Bogotá, on my way to visit the underground Salt Cathedral. His cool hat, the traditional sombrero vueltiao from Colombia reminds me of a photo of myself taken at the Botero Plaza of Medellín. Earlier, I was looking at one sculpture by the Colombian national treasure artist Fernando Botero, who donated those famous "fat" artworks for the museum there. One hat vendor suddenly came to me, and put one hat on my head, pointing to that sculpture: "Why don't you take a photo with this cool sombrero on?" He had 2 dozens of sombreros in his hands, with their national tri-colors on each of them, just like all those silly but fun souveniors for tourists. We both laughed. So here it is, my picture with the sombrero vueltiao! :)

I also like the monochrome one. What do you think? Which one do you prefer?

Here's the original size of the head image before it's cropped by the site, taken with iPhone 7 at the end of 2016. My post is inspired by @worldcapture's People Photography.

The black and white give it more of street photography look.

That's what I thought too. Thanks for your feedback Sara!

No, unfortunately we didn't try Colombian BBQ, but I had Colombian eggs for dinner yesterday :D
btw The black and white shot is better;) Also I love your sombrero:)))

Thanks! :) What are "Colombian eggs"? Are you guys still in Colombia?

No, we are not in Colombia.. but we used to eat there:D (it made with eggs, scallions and tomatoes) Its Colombian classic breakfast dish.
Have a lovely day, Donica:)))

Well, I've never been to Colombia but fortunately we have the exact same barbeque style here in Crete :)
I prefer the color version. Love the warm tones of the meat and the fire in contrast with the green apron of the man!
Love the sombrero pic, too :)

Aha, now I remember I did try lots of grilled fish in Crete, and moussaka, haha :D
Thanks for telling me your thoughts of the color contrast! I actually opted for the colored one as the head image out of the same reason. If there's no food in it, I'd have just posted a monochrome one I guess.

This looks delicious.

I guess so. ;) I didn't try this one but the other grills I had there were delicious.
