Santiago de Cali, or Cali, is known for its tropical climates and proximity to the Pacific Ocean. But aside from the weather, Anthony Bourdain is here to enjoy a few beers and an explosive, local game called “Tejo.”
“Tejo” is a traditional Colombian sport that consists of throwing large stones at packets of gunpowder. Participants throw a smooth rock, called a “tejo,” onto an incline that holds small packets of gunpowder. More points are earned when the rock lands in the middle of an incline without setting off any gunpowder.
