Recently, the city opened controlled walking paths in the mountains around Bogota. We did the ‘Quebrada de la Vieja’ twice, this path starts very close to Chapinero (calle 72, a 1.5 hour walk). We had some astonishing views on our giant city of 9 million people… and at the same time we felt like being in the middle of nature!
We’re now definitely installed in our appartement in Chapinero: we bought all material Tine needs for drawing / hang her drawings; we already tested out our terrace for lunch and for siesta; and Lies sent us a belgian present full of chocolate and cheese, which found a great place in our kitchen!
Furthermore we love to hang out with friends: walking in Parque Metropolitano Simon Bolivar; visiting la biblioteca Virgilio Barco (architecture of local star Rogelio Salmona); kayaking in Parque de los Novios; brunching in Chapinero Alto; cycling on the Ciclovia de dia ànd de noche (= special event before Christmas); partying on Lotte and Daniel’s rooftop… 😉
