My opinion of Bogota has changed DRASTICALLY from when I got here on Wednesday night until now. When I first got to Bogota, I thought I was going to die within the first half hour. Apparently they have Uber in Bogota, so I decided to get an uber from the airport to my hostel, Casa Bellavista. This hostel got great reviews on HostelWorld and is located in the old, historic area of Bogota called La Candelaria. However, I didn't realize that while really fun and popular ...
... and early to bed. We're all in need of some decent sleep after last night's noisy music. Unfortunately there is a large group of youngsters here (its Saturday) and they're having some sort of noisy meeting (supposed to be religious) in the room over the pool changing facilities. No windows so the noise carries all over the campsite. Have been told it will finish relatively early so fingers crossed.
This was my best travel day to date, possibly of my entire life... I woke up at Carol's apartment, thankful for a real, true night of sleep. It was the first time I slept past 8:00 in months and I slept until 11am. I attribute it to having a comfortable bed in a nice clean home... And maybe alcohol and partying.

... in and for Josefina to do some souvenir shopping.. Lunch at a crepe place then to the airport. An all to brief stay, but gave us a sample of Colombian life.
Air France flight back was disappointing compared to KLM, and no food at all on the short haul to London. I would recommend KLM if choice available.
So a good holiday with a variety of stuff done, enjoyed by us both, and thinking of Nicaragua now!
