Pesebre's precision is perfect. Klaxons and horns blare and beep, and the crowd chant his name. The man who's supposedly driving the damn thing is this close to getting run over by his own car, taunting it like some madcap matador. Then he hauls himself up, leaps off, and stands beside it, hat in one hand and waving a shirt above his head with the other.
Now I'm really worried, not least because I've been in the passenger seat for the duration wondering exactly how long my lunchtime bandeja paisa - pork and beans - is going to stay down. Someone high-fives me as I blur past for the umpteenth time. Then Pesebre climbs back in, calm as you like, and says, "Bueno diversión!" Clearly, there's no health and safety regimen in Colombia.
