My Second Day in Bogota.

 

My breakfast, while the same as yesterday, was great for three reasons.  The first is that there was a table free outside.  It wasn’t as quiet as eating inside, but it is a great feeling to eat out of doors.  The second is that I stumbled upon some people in my travel group.  It is always nice to meet people in a relaxed setting–and breakfast is about as relaxed as you can get.  The third is that the chef remembered me and my order from the day before.   That always makes me feel good.

I visited three places inBogota today.  The first was the gold museum.  It was interesting to learn how thenatives used gold for political purposes.  The second was to take the funicular to the highest peak in Bogota.  The view was great, but I left it too late in the day and the sky had become overcast.  Later, I visited the house of Simon Bolivar.  I don’t know enough about the history of South America to get the full benefit, but I do have something I can study later.  The furniture and gardens were lovely.20200220_155909

With the exception of the funicular, the museums have all been reasonably priced–less than two dollars, or free.  It makes me wonder why this isn’t the case at home.

 

I met the group we are going to be traveling with.  We took a short orientation tour and went out for dinner.  I recommended what I had for lunch at the Gold museum.   The name is Ajiaco.

    My wife and I prefer small group traveling. When we were younger we liked the adventure of winging it day by day. Now, not so much. Keep having a wonderful adventure.

    These pictures and the ones on Instagram have been very interesting so far, Anthony! I had no idea how cool Columbia is. Looking forward to seeing more.
