Arriving in Bogota, the first me impressed the airport is the fear on the issue of taxi insurance, express kidnappings, robberies, but as we were with friends from Peru and  La Paz, We climbed into a taxi between 7 people, and we arrive to the hotel .


The center of the very historic city but also apparently very dangerous, but fortunately I was able to take some pictures of downtown and the main square, but what impresses me about this journey is that from my hotel to the center, we went a hour by the Av. Circunvalar, a four-way highway, but hey, it arrived and the photos I have here.

I had to climb in a taxi to the top of Bogota to see the city, unbelievable but even on the horizon I did not see the end, we went through a military checkpoint (scared me), and we return to the Chamber of Commerce of Bogota.

In the Registry of Commerce of Bogota, would not let me take photos, I see that people have some fear of the pictures, rather I would say, they are very careful, but good to get some.

The night of Bogota is interesting, there are places for pedestrians, shopping, and nice places to dine, or take a good Colombian coffee or dinner.

A good time, in the short time I was in Bogota ..... I hope to return someday .....

Al llegar a Bogota la primera impresión que me hicieron dar en el aeropuerto es el miedo, por el tema de los taxis seguros, los secuestros express y los asaltos, pero como fuimos con amigos de Peru, La Paz, tomamos un taxi y tranquilos llegamos al Hotel Regency.

El centro de la ciudad muy historico pero tambien al parecer muy peligroso, pero afortunadamente pude tomar unas fotos del centro de la ciudad, la plaza principal, pero lo que mas me impresiono de esta travesia es que desde mi hotel hasta el centro, demoramos una hora por la Av.

Circunvalar, una autopista de cuatro vias, pero bueno, se llego y las fotos las tengo aqui.

Tuve que subir en taxi a la parte alta de Bogota para divisar la ciudad, increible pero aun en el horizonte no veia el final, pasamos por un control militar (me dio miedo), y volvimos a la Cámara de Comercio de Bogota.

En el Registro de Comercio de Bogota, no me dejaron sacar fotos, veo que la gente tiene algo de miedo a las fotografias, diria mas bien tienen mucho cuidado, pero bueno logre algunas.

La noche de Bogota es interesante, hay lugares peatonales, centros comerciales, y lugares muy bonitos para ir a cenar, o tomarse un buen cafe colombiano o una cena.

La pase bien, en el poco tiempo que estuve en Bogota.....  espero volver algun dia......
