¡Feliz cumpleaños (or happy birthday if you like) Gringo Tuesdays!

For some expatriates in Colombia, perhaps after an initial hedonistic phase that many don't escape, the country can become a land of opportunity, of sorts. Or at the very least a place to trial out new things.

Not all will go on to have success, but most have fun trying in any case. One of those foreign experiments that has stood the test of time is Bogotá's Gringo Tuesdays, a language exchange-cum-disco held at La Villa in Zona T that continues to attract the masses, of all creeds and races.

Admittedly, I haven't been going to it as much as I did in my early days in the city (age and work is catching up on me). But let's not let that stop us here from saluting something that in many ways has become an institution as it celebrates its fourth anniversary shortly.

And the simplest, most effective way to do that is to let those at Gringo Tuesdays do it themselves (with a cameo appearance or two from yours truly), via their promotional video (below). Enjoy (and congrats once again Gringos!):
