This just may officially be the most boring weekend in Colombia. Like many other countries, Colombia has decided to ban all alcohol sales for the entire weekend, due to the elections today. The bars and clubs are all closed, and even the grocery stores have some one watching the liquor. On top of that, no football games are held during the weekend either.
So, basically, the two things this country lives on have been taken away for the weekend. I’m not too concerned about it because a weekend relaxing is really nice.
I wonder if they are opening it it all up tonight after the votes are in? If they do I’m sure there will be a party tonight! I think during the 48 hours of prohibition I should have tried to live out my dream of being a flapper in a speakeasy.
If you’re looking to travel to Colombia for the party in the future, just make sure it’s not an election weekend.
Next weekend is officially my last weekend here. I’m starting to get really sad about leaving and really excited about my future home. I hope more people decide to not just visit, but live in, Medellin for awhile. It’s been one of the best times of my life!
