Bogota is a city of six million people situated high up in the Andes at 2,600 metres. Yes, you folk can work out that that is almost 9,000 feet and really very high.
First impressions of Colombia – clean, friendly, fresh, music,smiles. Modern high rise glass offices share the sky line with tall apartment buildings. Subways & underpasses & arterial roads are shadowed by retaining walls covered, no swamped with street art. It seems started by Justin Berber when he played here!! Old colonial buildings spread up the mountain sides from the Spanish centre on long tentacles of streets with verandas & balconies overhanging those passing below.
Being Sunday the streets are full of families & vendors selling food & treats. Parents pay for rides on ponies & llamas.
The Gold Museum is crowded.
Outside young conscripts parade.
Bogata families visit the local museums & galleries.
I like these images on the streets of Bogota.
