Colours of the city

The historic center between the old walls sure is a touristy area and you can't walk many meters before someone's offering you the "best exchange rate in the country", "finest emerald jewelry on the planet", fresh fruit, "purest cocaine" or chubby Fernando Botero souvenirs. But if you work your way through those obstacles, there's always something captivating and colourful that catches your attention. As much as there's at times ruthless sales going on, as much is there real human life ongoing in the very same barrios. We all have to make a living after all, in one way or the other.
