  • The setting is quite nice with the arches, and it's nice that most of the stands still have their sweets in glass jars. Plastic is taking over more and more though. The sweets were not my taste though...  more »
  • Vendors set up shop with all kinds of Colombian sweets. It was fun just walking by and looking at them, though I sure wanted to dig in. For more info and pics visit etbtravelphotography  more »
