Spring Break Bogota – “The Weather Was Great, But The Buildings Had Giant Ants”

My sister took these photos while on spring break in Bogota, Colombia.

Colombian artist, Rafael Gomez Barros, covered the National Congress with giant fiberglass ants. The sculptures, titled “ants” are said to “symbolize the people displaced by armed conflict in Colombia“.

The sculptures resemble something out of a Sci-Fi movie and are quite awesome, but if you ask a college freshman their opinion they’d tell you that as long as the drinking age in Colombia is 18, it doesn’t matter if there are giant ants in the beer.
