i was under the impression that i had written and published a post about bogota.. and wordpress is telling me otherwise!
uhhh so, i made it.
well then. 2nd times a charm right? i hope so, cause its my second time in colombia, and so far so good. i did get pooped on by a bird yesterday, but since thats good luck i only heaved once.
so what have i been up to? well, i got the hell out of bogota cause it wouldn’t stop raining. its a great city, but I’ve had enough of winter.
bogota is GIANT. literally the city goes on as far as the eye can see, and it can take over 2 hours to drive from one side to the other. i climbed about a million steps (and 2000+ meters of altitude gain) to the top.
i could have taken the funicular up , but that would have been way too easy. i did take it down though.. i want my knees to last for at least another decade or so. although it was a clear day, it was actually impossible to see the end of the city.
one of my favorite things about bogota is the street art- i have never seen such amazing graffiti! honestly (sorry dad.. you are not going to like this) but i am not a huge appreciator of classic ‘art’.. my favorite art galleries are the streets.. you never know what you are going to find!
apparently graffiti is pretty illegal- 2 kids were killed by police this year when they got caught tagging. fun (and fucked up) fact: apparently when justin bieber came to bogota, he was accompanied BY POLICE to tag something. talk about a double standard.
i have also never seen anywhere else that takes christmas more seriously.
no joke, santa must be pumped.
anyways, i had a great couple of days in bogota! tried some aguardiente, ate some patacones, and last night hopped on a bus. IM GOING GOING BACK BACK TO CALI CALI. no, seriously though, i am in cali right now after a 12 hour bus ride. the first thing i get asked when i get to my hostel is ‘want to go climbing?’
what do you guys think the answer was?
