Folklife Festival {featuring Colombia}

A journey through Colombia's cultural ecosystems... That is what we saw at the Smithsonian Folklife Festival on the National Mall last week.

They recreated a market with tiendas or "stores" displaying the arts and crafts of each region.

  1. Great photos Anabel! What incredible hand crafts and artisan work. That Panama hat is incredible, how do they weave it like that? Hope you're having a wonderful weekend. : )
