Bootiful Bogota

semi-overcast 18 °C

So after much worrying about what would await us in Colombia we were all very pleasantly suprised by Bogota!

Our "boutique hostel" called Casa Violeta is in the heart of Bogota's Candelaria district is very very cool, with modern art pieces on the walls and cold showers ;-). The surrounding district is amazingly pretty, with colonial architecture, cobbled streets all in the backdrop of mountian tops and clouds (due to the high altitude).

We spent our first afternoon wondering around the streets, taking in the views and people watching (and being watched by people). We also took in a bit of culture - popping into one of the city's art galleries, which had an impressive collection of impressionist art. Leia and Jo nearly got chucked out though for setting off the alarm and using flash photography.... you can take the girls out of Essex....
