“Tell her I think she’s fancy.” This was said to a fellow comuner by her inebriated brother about a girl he was interested in. I love the shit out of it. Really.
Costeño Tradition, Colombia
My friend Zamir, a Colombian from Bógota, told Baptiste and I about this tradition of many Colombians on the coast. It goes like this. Evidently, around the age of 13 or 14, young men living in certain parts of Colombia’s coast, ‘comer una burra.’ Now, don’t take this literally, they don’t actually eat the burra. In fact, they are having sex with the burra (donkey) so that their members can become strong and sturdy. Evidently, the burra likes it after some time, according to Zamir. In addition, if you as the wife of a Costeño what she thinks about the tradition, she will reply that she fully accepts it, and in fact would be upset if her mate had claimed to be a Costeño without actually having taken the steps to ensure membership in said club.
