    We landed at El Dorado International airport in Bogota at 8:30pm We are finally here! After months of waiting I am in Colombia! Me and my friends, Sam, AJ and Yune were all excited!

Our friends in Bogota, Daniel and Alejandra picked us up. We checked in at the Casablanca Hotel
 which is near the Zona Rosa area. its a very nice hotel, in a very nice area. The staff was very friendly. Its about $35 USD per night. I highly recommend this place. Its walking distance from restaurants, banks, and shops.

We unpack and got ready for the night while Daniel and Alejandra waited for us in the lobby. We took a taxi to Zona Rosa. Wow, this place is amazing! There were so many trendy restaurants, bars, clubs.
Yummy! bandeja paisa!!! ground beef, chicharrĂ³n, red beans, rice, chorizo, fried egg, avocado and an arepa.
It reminded me of the Sunset Strip in Los Angeles but better. We ate this very popular American theme hamburger joint called La hamburgueseria and met up with more friends of Daniel and Alejandra. . We decided to go to the Gavanna Club

The DJ played Spanish music, techno and a lil bit of American hip hop. We were all taking shots of Aguardiente and party all night long! The Colombians do know how to party and happy to show travelers a great time!

Next day we slept in late. For lunch, We went to this very upscale Bogota Restaurant. I forgot the name of the place, it was located upstairs and we sat out in the patio. I had Bandeja Paisa which is a very popular dish in Colombia. Very delicious! We went on and explore Bogota. Later on that night, we went to a shopping mall in Bogota with our friends Daniel and Alejandra and played pool. Next day.... off to Medellin..........
