The Medellin Office: Celestial Bucket

I really like this new page called THE MEDELLIN OFFICE published by Dutch journalists Jeroen Kuiper and photographer Ronald de Hommel.   They describe it as "a journalistic multimedia production bureau focusing on Latin America and based in Medellin, Colombia".  They publish stories in English, Dutch, German and Spanish.

I especially like their motion photography picture called THE CELESTIAL BUCKET.  Below is a screenshot of the picture, but to truly enjoy it click on the above link to view the impressive motion photography, and the rest of the site.

Bogota Eats + Drinks Blog

BOGOTA EATS + DRINKS is one of my new favorite blogs about Colombia.

Diana Holguin's award-winning blog takes you through a culinary journey of some of the best restaurants and eating joints in Bogota.

The culinary scene in Bogota is booming and cosmopolitan.  It seems like a new restaurant opens every week.

I'm salivating just seeing the pictures of the Colombian food.
