Colombia's Other Famous White Crystals

Advantages: Sounds interesting in theory
Disadvantages: Doesn't live up to the hype, Miners' Route not worth the extra money

Big Sis came to stay for 6 days and though originally we'd planned to do half the week away and half here in Bogota, the Colombian capital really is on the small side when it comes to things to see and do, so mid way through the week we decided to tag on ...

Back In The Saddle

Advantages: So much fun and really informative
Disadvantages: Unpredictable Bogota weather could be a downer

...class, I’ve not been on a bike in a good 10 years, so it was with some trepidation that I agreed to go on the Bogota Bike Tour with some friends. The shop is a bit of a landmark in La Candelaria, and stocks books for sale and for sw ...

Dorothy Was Wrong - Bogota's The Emerald City

Advantages: Interesting if somewhat niche museum, informative guides
Disadvantages: Guided tours only, so time your visit accordingly

I always thought of Esmeralda as a sort of old witch kinda name, until I got one in my class. Of course, the English translation, Emerald, seems a lot less chavy than calling your kid, say, Diamante. It's more like Amber or Jade ...
