I am curious if anyone has travelled in and around Bogota. If there is any advice on day trips out of the city or weekend trips to do on a small budget. Also if there are any good travel agencies to contact since I will be a female traveling alone.

    If you are in the North In Zona Rosa Near the centro comercial andino and centro comercial atlantis you will find a lot of Artisanos selling stuff on the side walks. Ask around for a artisano named Maria she is around 30 years old and has two daughters (single Mom) If you speak some Spanish tell her you are a Friend of her American Friend Patrick who used to take her to dinner and tell I said she used to get the trucha and Patrick would Pull a face as he dosent like the smell of fish. I would recomend take her to dinner and talk about the culture and America and you will make a friend for life. She taught me a lot of stuff and after I became friends with her I would buy a pizza or 2-3 and sit on the side walk with her and invite the poor artisanos to join in the feast and we would talk and laugh and share stories of our lives. They didnt speak any English for the most part so it forced me to use my Spanish but what a wonderful experiance it was. I hope you can find her and Pass on that I still think of her and her two daughters and wish them the best. If you can find her let me know that she is still well. Thank you for taking the time to read this and enjoy Colombia I miss the country so much I was there in 2005 for four months working and for a week in 2007 and hope to return again soon. about 8 years ago
