Colombia News – The venerable Paloquemao market’s fish section is packed these days (while the neighboring meat section stands vacant).

This is Seamana Santa (Holy Week), of course, and even if the number of Colombian Catholics is declining – and many of those Catholics are only nominally so – as these photos show, eating fish during Holy Week is still popular, if only for cultural reasons.
