Carnival has begun and if you are in Barranquilla, Colombia you are probably a part of the festivities. People from all over Colombia travel to this coast city for the 5 day celebrate. Barranquilla is also home to some of Colombian’s most famous celebrities like Sofia Vergara and Shakira. My Mother and younger Sister both traveled to Barranquilla a week ago to enjoy Carnival this year. I was not able to joined my family because I started this semester, the same day my family flew out to Colombia. But I video chat with them everyday!
