cos there's this switch that gets hit and it all stops making sense, and in the middle of drinks maybe the fifth or sixth
i was gearing up to leave bogota when i found out that manu chao was playing a free concert in the city. i remember clandestino being on a fairly constant rotation back in the office before i started my trip, so while i wasn't a huge fan i thought it would be cool to see. so i stuck around for a few days, walked down to the plaza a few hours before it was due to start only to find queues stretching for 6 blocks. i guess the good elements about a free concert directly cause the bad ones. i went back to the hostel and met a group of english people. three of them said that they were inside the plaza and found the atmosphere really scary and dangerous, too many people pushing and shoving and not enough security or paramedics. along with the long lines of people i decided to give it a miss and have a few drinks with the english instead. i'm pretty sure i consumed more tequila than water in the following 48 hours. the first night involved tequila stuntman where you snort a line of salt, down the shot of tequila and squeeze the lime in your eye. the second night i took a series of out of focus photos which perfectly captured the spirit of the evening. all in all it was a beautiful, blurry mess - good times.

one of the guys made a video of his colombian trip which includes a portion of our drinking antics towards the end - although i'd recommend watching the whole thing
