It was time to leave the my neighbourhood and explore more of Bogota. According to Trip Advisor, La Candelaria was the place to go, and Bogota Bike Tours was highly recommended for providing great tours. I knew it was far better for me to keep my two feet firmly planted on the ground, so opted for a walking tour of the historic district.
Police were visible, and when passing near the Presidential Palace (below), our bags were checked.
Next week I'm going to travel up to Montserrat which is supposed to give a fabulous view of the city. I can either hike 3 hours or take the funicular (it's to the right of the church going straight up the mountain). Pretty easy guess as to what I'll be doing.
