Happy Independence Day to all of my Colombian people worldwide. In places like New York, Miami and Madrid it's easy to find scores of paisanos to spend the day with, but my cousin Evelyn, an ex-pat studying in Tokyo, doesn't have that luxury. Still, she made do with her new friends in the far east and took Asian fusion to new levels.
Feeling festive yourself? Hit me up, if you know my digits, and let's do some Colombian stuff whenever, wherever. Check out the New York Times guide to a Colombian weekend in the city.
