Bienvenidos a Colombia!
More specifically, Bogota! I got in late last night for my very first stay at a hostel. I must admit, I was less than thrilled when I saw the room, but it’s grown on me! After an icy cold shower this morning, I headed out to see the city. First up was the Plaza Bolivar, and surrounding areas.Then, I got my own personal tour guide! My friend Bonnie’s cousin, Diana, was nice enough to show me around for the day. We walked around the Candelera neighborhood, and had lunch at her favorite restaurant. Then we headed up to Monserrate. We took a cable car to the top of the mountain, where we had an excellent view of the sprawling city below. So far, so good. The people are very friendly, and the weather is wonderful. Not too hot, not too cold. A nice change from the frigid northeast!
Yay! I told you hostels weren’t so bad 😉
lol, I think some are better than others! But I’m getting used to it 🙂
It’s good to hear from you. Thank you for sharing the pictures, Colombia is beautiful! I am very jealous of you! It’s great to know that you are doing well. Enjoy the rest of your trip and take care of yourself.
Thanks FeiFei! It’s very beautiful. Plus the food is great – you would love it!
Beautiful shots to show the people and life already! Sounds like a good start (except for the cold shower of course brrrr!)
Thanks Cathy! At least the cold showers wake you up for the day 😉
So beautiful! (The scenery and you!) Glad to hear you made it there safely. Looking forward to more updates!
PS—You ain’t missin’ a thang back in the states!
Thanks friend. Of course I miss you guys already!
Your trip is off to a great start. Looks beautiful in Colombia. Enjoy!
How wonderful! This is a great opportunity! Take full advantage of it!
Thanks Cindy! Trying to make the most of it 🙂
Kavitha, my school is Pontificia Universidad Javeriana if you have time stop by. xoxo
Luisa, I was already there! My friend lives close by to that University 🙂
It all looks so beautiful! Glad to see you are off to a good start. Hey, try to post some pictures of your hostels if you can. I’m curious as to what they are like.
Thanks Laura! I’ll try to do a post on the hostel rooms soon!
