I love when I see active senior citizens. It makes me feel that we are still important members of society. When we flew from Bogota to The Coffee Triangle a few days ago, I noticed many older folks on our airplane in uniforms. Our tour guide explained that the government and other benefactors sponsor gatherings around the country several times a year where senior citizens share items from their local communities and exchange ideas.
I was also reminded that when Latinos meet, there is always a lot of dancing. No one needs an excuse to party. I felt very fortunate to meet up with the ambassadors again in the town of Filandia. I have included a video of local politicians campaigning alongside the seniors and, of course, dancing.
