I just love the posters on walls around town. They often advertise upcoming concerts, salsa performances at clubs or candidates during election time. The election in Colombia was last Sunday. People have been peeling bits and pieces of the posters off the walls all week. Often, there are layers of posters on top of each other. Bits peak out in the midst of others. To me, it’s art. Here is a part of the wall along Calle 5 near my street. The race for mayor of the Valle de Cauca, of which Cali is the main city, was very close. The president of Colombia okay-ed a recall. We’ll see who wins for sure soon. Whether the election results stand.
