We Meet the Escobar Crew in the Cemetery

Every bishop, including this pretend one, should have a mountain bike!

During today’s bike ride in the Central Cemetery we met this crew filming an episode of the Caracol miniseries about cocaine kingpin Pablo Escobar. The episode involved the funeral of Luis Carlos Galan, a charismatic politician gunned down in South Bogotá in 1989 on Escobar’s orders. The full conspiracy behind the killing is still being investigated.

The TV series has been controversial because some people feel it portrays Escobar too sympathetically.

We didn’t stick around to see whether these rifles got used.

Not sure whether these are bad guys or good guys, but they look friendly enough.
