Delimiro Teran is a Vision in Orange - Thirty-five years ahead of the carrot curve

El ZanahoriazoDelimiro Teran is a Vision in Orange

Delimiro Teran Cordoba has had the Cartagena carrot juice market sown up for the best part of 30 years.

Getting through 150 carrots a day, El Zanohariazo, as he likes to call himself, is well ahead of the carrot curve.

He snakes his way through Getsemani and the Old Town in his distinctive orange outfit, peddling his particular mix of carrots, lemon juice, iced water and sugar at US$0.30 a slug.

His infectious smile, razor-sharp night vision and a healthy skip in his step serve as the best advert for the consumption of carrot juice we've ever met.

Here Delimiro tells us where he spends his juicy returns.

After finishing his lap of the Old Town, Delimiro ends up in El Coroncoro on the Calle Tripita Media. "The best place for lunch in the centre has to be El Coroncoro. You get your ribs stew, rice with lentils and stewed fish at a great price. You can't go wrong."

"If you want to take a little piece of Cartagena home with you find a copy of Soy Getsemanisense by Lucho Perez. Getsemani is more a state of mind than a barrio. It's the real Cartagena. They love their carrot juice there as well."
