Flowers, Flowers, Flowers

Medellin just finished its Feria de Flores.  This year brought even more people into the city since Medellin is also one of the host cities for the Under 20 World Cup Soccer tournament.  So the city has been full, full, full with activities, parades (antique cars, dogs, children’s flower parade, horses, etc.) concerts of all styles and genres of music, and a big orchid show.  The major attraction is what you see above–the silletas of flowers.  This follows the tradition of the florists from up in the mountains who used to carry their flowers on their backs into Medellin on these silletas to sell them in the city.  It makes for a beautiful and colorful week and festival that everyone enjoys.
