This will be a very shot entry on Uribia, a Guajira's village we rode past on our way to El Cabo de la Vela.

The Cultural Center of the Wayúus

What you see from the window is not beautiful, in fact, I thought that we were going there as I heard there were shared taxis going there to El Cabo de la Vela and it was a must; but later I understood it would´t be so as soon as I saw the driver buying contraband gasoline from some street vendors there.

We didn´t stop in the village but I saw some tourists buying some souvenirs made by the Wayúus, so I suppose it is sometimes a tourist stopover. And it should be, this is the place where you find the most indigenous people living in a Colombian village

The guide told us that the village organises the Festival de Cultura de Wayúus, where you can learn about this fierce indigenous group as they depict art, culture and knowledge about them.

Ok, bye for now
