May 5, 2013, Bogota, Columbia

We flew to Bogota on May 3.  Up at 1:30 am to catch our 2 am taxi to the airport..  The flight was uneventful and we were safely in Bogota at 7:30 am.  It was a very long day.  We have been staying in a cramped noicy expensive hostel and so we are hoping tonight we will have better accomodations but you never know.  Yesterday we explored Bogota, say lots of great churches and a bit of a rock concert (all we could stand) and spent alot of the day at the National Museum.  There was an interesting exhibition of black and white photography by Leo Matis and lots of paintings of chubby people by Boterio.

Bogota is certainly much more like New York city than La Paz Bolivia.  Today we are taking a bus, four hours north to a small village!
Love to you all
