        We arriveren 's avonds laat in Bogotá. We worden ondanks het late uur -hier is het al na middernacht- zeer vriendelijk ontvangen door Daniel, de receptionist van dienst. We krijgen een drankje gratis aangeboden.
        Het hotel is goed gelegen, in de Candelaria wijk. Het oude centrum is vanaf hier gemakkelijk te voet te bereiken.
        Het hotel is erg in orde, onze 2-persoonskamer een beetje aan de kleine kant, maar eigen sanitair. vriendelijk personeel, gezellige ontbijtruimte, heel smakelijk ontbijt (zelfbediening, je kan meermaals bijhalen, o.a. cornflakes en yogurth!). In de gemeenschappelijke leefruimte is er gratis internet (ook wifi), TV, lectuur. Een aanrader!

        We loved the place only problem is that it gets really cold because of the open area in front of the rooms, plus not exactly insultaed rooms. Could do with heaters in cold days

        ... we all congregated back together as the instructions didn’t tie in with what the road was like. The Yellow Dinner Bus was there as well, and after lots of debate and non-successful conversations with Cristiano by phones that couldn’t get a connection, we all carried on again along the same road. Another 20km saw us all congregating once again and now decided that we were all going the wrong way….. After consulting the maps we all continued ...

        ... was time to go to out. We headed to the hostel where Tina the Sanfran girl and the Frenchmen were staying and hung out there for a bit before heading out to a salsa and contemporary dance club. It was a pretty awesome spot and I met a group of Colombians there who I ended up talking with for two hours.... And I only needed to reference my phone dictionary once! We headed back to the hostel around 3:30am and I passed ...

        ... The old town of Candelaria goes from calle 1 to calle 14 and these represent the buildings erected from 1536 to the 1600s and as people started to move into the city from the countryside the rich moved onto new buildings and streets further up the city.By this method you can also decipher what social class you belong to.If you can afford an apartment in calle 180,you can safely say you are middle class.The lower the calle the lower the class and the more rough the area. ...

This day I got to experience the public bus service, the Transmilenio which are bendy buses with designated lanes throughout Bogota. I used it in the morning to get to the North Terminal for another bus with Nicole to Zipa, but on the way back I got a taste of rush hour commuting. Luckily I didn't have far, but on when I got close to my stop, saying permiso or perdon to try and access ...
