At the beginning of November, I traveled to Bogota, Colombia. Considering it's a neighboring country, I'd never been before. So I went to the capital, Bogotá, located 2600 m above sea level - this means that the first night you get the most awful headache and you feel like you're in slow motion - afterwards, you can enjoy the city!
My favorite part: the weather! It was around 16-18°C. I live in a country with no winter, so I went all out on the fall attire here! (Yay!) And interestingly, this weather is around all year round, but I think that would be too much for me.
I ate so much (I tried every fruit juice possible), visited many parts of the city which is so different from my own, all the way from the weather to the accent and character of the people, and bought some interesting leather goods (purses!)
Now on to the pictures:
1) Plaza Bolívar in La Candelaria, small family restaurants (why is it that these small hidden restaurants always have the best food?), and a street sign (Bogotá is a big square where all horizontal streets are called Carreras and vertical streets Calles and they're all numbered - don't get me started on the direction system in Venezuela).
2) Catedral Primada in the Plaza Bolívar (La Candelaria). The pigeons are everywhere and actually if you're quiet you can hear a big chorus of coos fill up the whole square - very cool.
3) The inside of the Catedral Primada, Botero museum (well actually it's more like a Botero sculpture in the Botero museaum), El Retiro (the posh zone in Bogotá where all the cool stores/people and places are).
Birthday on Friday! YaayyyTweet
