We started off going up Monserrate and I never tire of the view. We went up the mountain via the funicular which was interesting and we were lucky to have a relatively clear day when we reached the top -- a breathtaking (literally) 10,341 ft above sea level.
|The conductor in the front car -- you can see another funicular car coming down|
|We had lunch at this restaurant on the cliff|
|We had a delicious lunch of Colombian appetizers and hearty soup|
|La Primada Catedral -- awe inspiring cathedral dating back to the 17th century|
|The old wooden doors were beautiful|
|In the midst of a bustling Bolivar Plaza --- two gentlemen play chess.|
I enjoyed being Roger and Craig's guide to some of the places I discovered while they were working. My guide's "tip" was dinner out at a great restaurant in the Parque 93 district. A wonderful ending to a terrific day.
