It took six months for her to smile. But, I find that sort of fascinating. The lady in the photo is not her but I liked her style.
When I moved to Bogota, I was told about the chile lady. It took me a long time to find her because Paloquemao market, while not immense, can be confusing because so many of the stalls look exactly alike. Now I know that she’s a right turn from Peter’s Chinese vegetable stall, located in the Chinese vegetable alley.
There is also a “Mexican” stall but I usually get my chiles from the Chile Lady of Paloquemao.
