... cars but open it up for cyclists, joggers, rollerbladers, walkers etc. Monday was a public holiday so the road was closed to cars this day as well. There were loads of people out exercising. On the way we passed a Bogota Beer Company pub so we stopped for beers. It was 12.30 and we were their first customers of the day :-) the beer was really good and we sat outside and watched all the people exercising while they looked at us gringos in disgust.
