Santos v Mockus

It hasn't featured much in the UK media, but the Colombia presidential election campaign is nearing its end - it's down to two candidates: Juan Manuel Santos, a former defence minister standing for Partido de la U, and the Green Party's Antanas Mockus. It's odds on that Santos wins in the run-off election on 20 June, which is a bit of shame - Mockus would have offfered an interesting contrast to the left wing-lunacy of Chavez next door in Venezuela.

But in any case, here's a couple of pics from when I was in Colombia earlier in the year, when the campaign was well under way:
