Cordillera del Centro

To get to and from Flandes I was lucky enough to drive through the magnificently beautiful Andes! The Andes are a famous mountain range that lie on the Western coast of South America. It passes through Chile, Argentina, Bolivia, Peru, Ecuador, Venezuela and of course Colombia. We went through the center range of the Andes. It was so stunning. Every second was breathtaking, looking in the distance and thinking that they went on forever. The roads along it are hilariously dangerous due to a vast amount of curves. It gave me such a rush! The only thing is that the altitude is insane. It totally kills your ears, but a small price to pay for the experience. 

But alas, I am now back in good old Bogota. More tales to come.

Tierra Caliente.... a little sunshine

My weekend was spent in Flandes which is a darling small town 3 hours south of Bogota. I got burnt and swam forever. I ate for the first time what is called 'Lechona' which is basically BBQ pig which they adorn with rocking shades and an apple in the mouth to boot. I've also eaten 'Morcilla' or 'Rellena' which is blood sausauge. SO DELICIOUS. Never thought I'd say that.The culture here is definitely different to that of the North. I love it too much. Everything is twice as delicious and wonderful. One of the things that I've noticed and have to mention is that everyone here has a motorcycle or moped. Its crazy! Driving here is insane. There's hardly lane divisions and everyone drives like a maniac with families of 10 in each tiny car. Its amazing!!

I bought you a Llama

Some shots of my day in downtown Bogota. Blue Skies and Ghosts. So many galleries. Do they know I love art? Yes.
