Photo of the Week – Kites

kitesMichael: In Colombia the most windy time of the year is in August. That is when vendors along the street sell kites (cometas in Spanish) of every imaginable kind and size.

Graciela: In Colombia for the last 38 years they have held the Festival Nacional del Viento y las Cometas (National Festival of Wind and Kites) in the city of Villa de Leyva. People come from all around the world to participate. This is such a big event that you need to book your hotel room at least a year in advance.

Michael: Thinking of coming in 2014? Here is a page listing some of the hotels in Villa de Leyva. My wife and I really enjoyed our stay at the Hotel and Convention Center Duruelo. Here is their web page in English.
