One thing I did not know is that Bogota is cold. Really, really cold. And rainy. Its also a really old city, with so many small lanes and tiny shops which suddenly open out to wide roads and multi-storied office buildings. Its a really nice city, but being fans of small towns ourselves and having heard great things about Colombia’s countryside, our time at the bustling capital was limited to two days.
Here is a quick snapshot of our stay in Bogota, Colombia.
