Halloween

Triqui triqui Halloween,
Quiero dulces para mi.
Y si no me das,
Se te crece la nariz.


Halloween didn’t fall on an ideal date. Last year it was a Saturday night and this year it was a Wednesday. Not exactly great for kids who have school or adults who have work the next day. Nevertheless, that didn’t stop parents and children from celebrating this day, which I have been told is officially named “Day of the Children.” Although, everyone I have talked to has called it “Halloween.”

My Spanish class had a party. Everyone brought food or a beverage. I brought aguardiente. We had a good time. There are many Chinese and Germans in my class. The only other American I know at Universidad Nacional is a 6'8" guy named Andy, who is from Washington, D.C., and for the record is a good friend.

I left class with my friend Daniel, who is from London. We bought masks, which both resembled a devil. We didn’t prepare for Halloween. I visited my friend Cindy, a 9-year-old girl who spends a lot of time at the beauty salon near my apartment. Granted, her mom, Aleyda, who dressed up as a witch, runs the salon. Cindy dressed as a flower. Despite her age, she is one of the smartest people I know in Bogota, and is a great actress. Dan and I spent time at the beauty salon taking pictures.

Then we drank some aguardiente and went to Zona Rosa, a popular and posh area for nightlife. We met some Colombians and had a good time. However, due to the local elections, all the bars and clubs were closed the previous weekend. And because it was a weekday, many adults didn’t celebrate Halloween. However, this Friday and Saturday there are parties and Halloween festivities. Thus, Halloween is not finished...
