|restaurant in Bogota|
When i left it had started to rain and i was about 30 blocks from the hostel so i sat at the only cafe with outdoor seating that i found and sat under an umbrella and smoked a cigar until the rain stopped. Of course once i left it started to pour and i got soaked and have been cold and wet ever since. The first two days here were very wanm and sunny but the second two days have had intermittant showers and rain.
On the way back to the hostel i was passed by a group of about three dozen soliders in full combat camoflague, helmets and boots, and carrying machine guns. I don't know what it was all about but the people on the street did not pay any attention, so i guess it is a usual occurance.
After resting back at the hotel with yet another cup of hot coca tea in the kitchen by the wood burning stove, i went out for dinner. I think i'll stay in for the rest of the evening, as it is warm here and i have an earlyish flight to Cartagena.
Bogota has been great. Four days was perfect. If i had any more time i would have done more day trips out of the city but i feel quite satisfied.
