Festival de Buga
I’d been to the town of Buga many times, but they were celebrating their yearly festival so I took the bus there with my uncle and his wife. There were lots of arts and crafts, food, and the usual festival stuff. What I really enjoyed was my first Colombian rodeo. It was actually my first rodeo ever, there not being many cowboys in Philly. I was really impressed with how many Colombian cowboys there are and how they make sure to pass on these traditions to the next generation. I love this image of a boy racing his father. Colombian cowboys are called bacceros.
