La Candelaria Returns to Life!

The La Candelaria neighborhood, Bogotá's historic center and the location of many universities, is coming back to life these days as students return to class.

The neighborhood has more than a dozen universities, all but one of them private. And, when the students are around, La Plaza del Chorro becomes the center of action, with its musicians, street performers, storytellers, chicha bars and crafts and pot sellers.

Playing with fire.
