Bogota-National Capital

Location: Bogota, Colombia

First few days, lovin´the city, the people, and the weather!

4 Mar 2007, 10:27AM

The walk up to Monserrate (the cathedral at the top of a hill overlooking BOgota). Lush, verdant hills surrounded the path, with the Iglesia at the top emerging from the humid, misty fog.

View from the plane...the parched earth, cracking like veins, still a view over Canada

Art by Fernando Boltero. A famous Colombian artist, who makes his subjects larger than life (I suppose fatter). Comical to someone (me) who really has no art history knowledge, and just laughs at the fat people, fat fruit, fat animals, and fatness of the whole exposition!

The Iglesia Monserrate in behind. It was an elevation gain, but I made it, along with the other pilgrims. In case you are tired along the way though, you can buy various items, from candles to beer to water and random grilled meat.

THe Jardin Botanico (botanical gardens) was one of my fav stops. The incredible ability to grow such exotic things at this latitude makes Canadas climatic zone seem so boring. Dad, you would love this place.

The Museum is also home to work by Dahli (shown here) and other notable artists such as Picasso.

I mean really, look at that bad ass orchid!

POpular local dish ( I think an arepa salteņa-will get back to you on the exact name) a delicious soup with chicken, rice (of course chicken and rice) capers, you cut the avocado and add it, cheese bread, cilantro, and a few other delicious additions!

Biggest surprise to me this time...not putting toilet paper in baskets, but SO MANY horse drawn carts in a modern setting. What a contrast to the skyscrapers.

Hello Angie from Cata and Heather! This amazing Colombiana has welcomed me, cooked for me, and showed me some of her work (as an interior designer). I am really impressed with her talent, in Canada it would far surpass much of the shit I see in restaurants today, so mundane and similar themed. That is what I meant when I said there is so much more to draw on for inspiration here, and this is portrayed in work such as Catas!
