Exploring Bogota

View of Bogota from Monserrat
Today is dedicated to exploring a new city in a new country with old friends.  Viva Colombia!
A walk en la calendaria (center) of Bogota.
Breakfast tamales and lulo fruit juice (a new one!) at la Puerta Falsa in Bogota's old city.
Bogota is full, FULL of graffiti.  Everywhere you look, on every building.
It tuns out that there is free admission to museums on Sundays in Bogota, so we took a quick sweep through the Botero museum.. and were greeted by this gigantic fat hand that I fell in love with.
Train up the mountain that dominates the center of Bogota - Monserrate.
Tunnel up the mountain.
Walking through the food markets at the top of Monserrate.
Chickens in a hot tub?

A little cheese and guava snack
Trying to see if coca tea really does help with altitude sickness...
Beautiful texture on a clay roof on Monseratte.
High altitude flowers at the top of the mountain.
