The Train to Zipaquira, Colombia (video)


There is a old little train that takes you from downtown Bogota, Colombia to a small little pueblo about an hour outside of the city called Zipaquira. However this is no ordinary train ride. At various points on the slow ride, a 7-person tropical band fills the aisle of your car and belts out various tunes. The video below is a short taste of the trip and the band playing their rendition of "Dame Tu Mujer, Jose".
