Bogota postcard

Lean forward, side sway to see the tops of buildings, taxi accelerating to stop bicycle hard cases clunking behind us. Concrete and the trees, maybe the fences make it look like a brick Miami, it’s cool but not cold. White trim lights gild tracing the houses. Honking horns, curious flags fluttering from passenger window, cars covered with flour? the Bogota futbol team just beat Medellin for their first championship in more than two decades, festive.
