Los Carros!

New Years is a good time to lighten the load a bit.  That's how I came across an issue of Educación y educadores, a journal published by Universidad de La Sabana in Colombia, a souvenir from a conference I participated in there a year ago. I don't read Spanish so . . . the recycling box. But take a look a this cover image.

That's La chatarra de Jeisson (Dodge Charger), a watercolor by Fèlix Antonio Plaza Carvajal, a student at the university. Inside are more painting of the cars of friends and family, including El carro de Dona Betty (Chevrolet Desoto 1956) and El viejo Cadillac de mi abuelo (Cadillac Fleetwood 1958).

It's hard to tell from the paintings whether the cars are parked in Colombia or the United States. Either way, Que chévere! (Colombian for how awesome!)
