Riding the bus in Bogota Aug 20, 2009
Hello everyone.. Even though i had the best time of my live in Colombia something bad happend to me and i want you all to know that it certainly is possible to happen to you as well.. I went with the bus the first night and we became in an armed robbery.. With a gun and a knife the tortured my friend and his family for money and mobile phones.. I was lucky enough to be wearing dark clothing and that safed my life.. But please do not go with the bus during the evening.. I know it is cheap but just take a taxi and they will bring you home safely.. I had a terrible first evening and lots of stuff got stolen from my friends and i don't wish anyone the same on there holiday.. Please take your taxi and you will be fine.. And just between me and you.. Taxi's are cheap as well in Bogota,Colombia.. Safe travels.. :)

Hey hun, does this count for long-distance bus journeys between cities? I think I might give it a risk and just hope for the best as can't really afford a taxi between cities :(

Dat is schrikken, ik weet precies hoe jij hebt gevoeld toendertijd, ik heb het zelf ook meegemaakt hier in eigen land. Ik ben blij dat je er veilig bent afgekomen. Zijn de anderen ongedeerd gebleven?

The security in Colombia is awesome. There is security everywhere. Is using common scene. Like any big city just take the necessary precautions. Unless you like to wander around to explore non-tourist areas then you can find a problem. Other than that It's a beautiful country Waiting to be explored.
