After a nice leisurely breakfast at our hotel this morning Maria picked us up and we headed for La Candelaria region of town with patterned streets that climb from the Plaza de Bolivar , colorful homes, important historic buildings and great places to eat!
One of my favorite Colombian artist, Fernando Botero, happens to have a museum, Botero Museo, in the area so it was with great excitement that I got to view his talents this morning, I throughly enjoyed this beautiful museum…
The Plaza is known for all kinds of demonstrations but on this day we were blessed to have very few people strolling around. Again the weather was beautiful and mild. Here is my favorite picture of the day:
As Maria had to go to work, Rodrigo played tour guide and gave us more insight into the history of the area and we had great discussions on what daily life in Bogota is like. We had a marvelous lunch at Fulanitos Restaurant!
