i arrived back in bogota, in some strange domestic terminal and took a cab into the unknown. but no reason to worry, my last two days in bogota were a blast! she took really good care of me and we visited everything i missed on my first stay.

we went up to monserrate by cablecar where the sunset over bogota is just breathtaking. one can see the huge dimensions of this city. i also found a nice colombian-themed hammock for my balcony and, i felt really touristy, the miniature botero sculptures ('fat horse' & 'fat cat' :) )

last but not least we went to cha cha, the nightclub high up in the former hilton building in the middle of the city. it was one of the most impressive locations for a club i've seen so far. not as posh as i expected (or it used to be) but still a very nice way of spending your time at night! :)

2 weeks really is too short for a trip like that and it felt really bad to return home already.
.. a rtw trip just spoils every future short trip as a comparison :) nevertheless i embarked on the adventure iberia for the second time and with the help of the colombian sleep/anti-motionsickness pills time passed quickly (not without waking up in the middle of the 'night' having no choice other than watching a coldplay concert on the monitors and hoping to fall asleep again asap). the 4h stopover in madrid was terribly boring again and i was almost happy to see the branded-travelling-gear wearing swiss people at the terminal, swinging their cameras around finishing their (i'm sure) immensly interesting travel videos about their adventures of 2 weeks in a 5 star hotel in patagonia ;)
