Egipto’s Three Kings Festival

Mixing with the locals

Egipto, the poor and high-crime neighborhood above La Candelaria, is not normally a tourist destination. But for three days every January the neighborhood celebrates the Festival of the Three Kings who the Bible says brought gifts to the new-born Jesus.

The festival includes religious events, but most of it involves fun, friendliness, food, drink and games. When Bogotá Bike Tours visited, everyone wanted to be friends.

Where's the beef? Taking a swing and a swig.
