... Ajiaco Bogotano and Arroz con Pollo.
Our hosts (if that is the right word for someone who has given you the keys to their house, and helped with advance organization?) had arranged for a driver for us.

Las Novelas is an important part of Christmas everywhere in Columbia but the region of San Gil is known for this crazy 4:30 am service.
