A Visit to Paloquemao's Morning Flower Market

Today is Valentine's Day - a big day in Colombia, if only because flowers drive a chunk of the economy. Over recent decades, Colombia's flower exports have bloomed, mostly to the United States (and at the expense of the U.S.'s domestic flower market, which has wilted), thanks to greatly reduced tarrifs. 

So, what better place to commemorate Valentine's Day than in Paloquemao's morning flower market, which we sometimes visit during our bike tours.
