Declaracion de la Independencia de Colombia (Colombian Independence)

Today is Independence Day in Colombia, celebrating their Declaration of Independence on July 20, 1810!

Since I’m away at camp, I went to Aires De Colombia in Bradley Beach, NJ last Friday for one of Colombia’s national dishes: Bandeja Paisa

Translated it means a paisa (a region of Colombia) style platter. It’s composed of grilled steak, rice, beans, plantain, chorizo, Chicharron, avacado and a fried egg.

I also got a beef empanada for later

And I stocked up on Colombian snacks for camp
