who in turn got it from Juan Valdez


Bogotá
Atro City


Just about the filthiest place I ever visited (2008), on our way to Patagonia.
Apart from all the rubbish everywhere, the state of the sidewalks is asking for broken legs.
Then, the police all over, as Juan Valdez makes his money these days from cocaine, not coffee.
It also somehow spoils your fun when you keep getting warnings all the time how dangerous it is to walk around there.



bad enough to take you to the
Cementerio Central


these are safe, as yet
watch your step
but one has been repaired already

It's not all rubbish, filth and diesel fumes: only mostly.

And small wonder, with all those buses and cabs.
Well over half the Colombian population lives here, and it shows.

Up Yours

mountain_top

There's a funicular combined with an aerial cableway to the top of one of the mountains overlooking the city.
Fair warning: the thing only starts about halfway up the mountain. Once on the top, you still have to climb to really get there
- quite an effort in the thin Bogotá mountain air. Most of the time, the view is all fogged up.
Worst, after we had walked up and then down back to the station, it was closed and we had to make it back up to the cableway.
No warning - naturally!
