Tomato fight in Colombia - level 2, A12
Colombia has some great tomato growing regions. Very great, in fact, there is always a bit left over.
So, what do you do with all those fruits that are a bit destroyed? Well, you could throw them at your neighbours, and it is what the Tomatina festival, around two hours north of a capital Bogota, is all about.
18 tons of old fruit, thousands of tomato covered fighters.
At 1 o’clock, fire department comes.
