Happy Independence Day Colombia!
Happy Independence Day Colombia! On July 20th 1810 the movement towards Colombia’s independence from Spain started in the city of Bogota. This year marks 212 years since the uprising. Legend has it that the battle for the independence was ignited over disputes involving a flower pot.
If you want to jump into the celebration, grab a ‘bandeja paisa’, turn on some traditional folklore music, or compete in a game of ‘tejo’; a game that involves opponents throwing metal disks at an explosive target on a mud slab (a much more entertaining form of corn hole).
Happy Independence Day to Colombia and all Colombians around the world.
