My Colombian journey continued...

We left the peaceful jungles of Minca for Bogotá, the expansive capital city of Colombia with a budding art scene, hip shops and an array of culinary choices to suite anyone's palette. We had four days full of shooting, with limited time to explore, so we made the most of it. 

If you have never been to Bogotá, visit the main sites. La Candelaria is a historic neighborhood lined with cobblestone roads and vibrant street art. It is home to the Plaza Bolívar, where you can find the National Capital building. Grab the best tamales and hot chocolate you will ever taste at La Puerta Falsa, a restaurant landmark that has been serving traditional Colombian fare since 1816! 

For a historical perspective with a stunning view, visit Monserrate on a clear day. You can take a cable car up for $6USD and sip on some coca tea at the highest cafe in Bogota. 

And if you like to live on the wild side, try some Chicha from one of the many bars and street markets in La Candelaria. Chicha is a locally made, fermented corn drink with a low alcohol percentage and a sour kick.
