A "Parranda" (street party) in "La Esquina de Geno", the most popular parranda place in El Cafetal, where all the bohemians of the neighborhood gather. Poeple dancing and arm wrestling in front of the picture of "El Profe" (professor) one of the main carachter of the neighborhood and amateur composer. A parranda is a big part of a Vallenato's lifestyle: in a parranda you listen vallenato classics, you dance and most of all, you drink. You hear so much vallenato that it seems the last will of the people, you so much alcohol that it seems that all the reserves of whiskey and beer will be exhausted. People drink liters of contraband whiskey and fall asleep when the body asks for it, to rest and start over. Sometime parranda can last for 2-3 days. These parties can not be done anywhere. There are houses that have become institutions for accordion parties.
