In Colombia exists what is a tasty treat to many — Hormigas Culonas or “Big Assed Ants” — that come from the Santander region and are eaten as a delicacy throughout the country. Around april of every year, these “treats” become available to eat with the arrival of the rainy season. They are caught, then have their wings removed, are thrown into a pan with salt and a little water, then are baked crunchy, and eaten — just like peanuts.

Sabroso.

And here is where I catch my friend Drew eating hormigas culonas for the first time in Bogotá. I wonder how much he likes them…?

Este Amor No Tiene Fin.
