Sundays in Cali, as in most of Latin America, are family days. Whether church is involved or not, Sunday are the day you spend quality time with family and friends. Today we ventured south of Cali to EL Rio Pance, a popular Sunday swimming spot. The river was absolutely packed with people. Many families brought giant pots that they fill with river water to boil and make soup. People BBQ’d, drank beer, jumped off ledges into dangerously shallow water, and floated in the nice cool mini-rapids.
Another favorite Sunday and evening activity in Cali is kite flying. Every evening brings families outside to fly their “cometas.” Every park, empty lot, and grassy round-about fills with families. I don’t think I have flown a kite since I was little, but I’m totally inspired to buy one and give it shot. Looks like there is actually quite a bit of skill involved…Maybe I’ll come home as a expert salsa dancer AND kite flyer.
