Posted on Posted in Colombia 2011

After my return to Barranquilla, Hernando and some of his friends were planning a trip to Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta. Which, as you may have guessed, is near Santa Marta.

As night fell we reached the cabins.

Then dinner was started. Chicken heart, some steak and a corn type of biscuits.

Everyone sat around telling stories as with any camping trip. But the food and method was completely new to me.

I love the Colombian way of a BBQ. Everyone gets a piece as it is finished cooking, rather than the traditional everyone gets a whole piece here in the US.
