After great trip to a school in south Bogota with Profa Blanca Marķa Peralta
via Transmileno J23, we enjoyed a nice coffee and pastries at a lovely place - Cafe de la Pena. Then a meandering walk back... thus the new doors!

Monserrate ...

... public restrooms, toilet paper is at a premium. Even in higher end public places (museums etc), there is almost never toilet paper in the stalls. There might be a big roll outside the stall ( so plan ahead, before you settle in!) - but equally likely, that big roll will be empty. You do get used to it - but it is different!

2. Really big curbs -- like at least 8 inches high and sometimes 12 inches. You could do a good ...

... for snakes, spiders and other creatures (Tessa note: I understood). Fortunately one of the other guests spoke English and told us. It is fair to say we were extremely alert during the walk. The cave was great, we started at one end and went right beneath the hill to the other end by the river. Some birds live in the cave and squawk loudly when they are disturbed. One even pooed on my neck and shoulder which the Colombians found very funny. In the cave we mostly waded through knee ...

... do get to the city. I cannot believe how many people are on the streets. There are tens of thousands of people pushing and shoving their way past all the street sellers. I have never seen such chaos. After 20 minutes we emerge at the old city, which is rather interesting. Some very old building with great architecture.

Its getting dark so we head back to the bus station, knowing full well what’s ahead of us. After battling the crowds we board the bus and the trip back is ...

    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
