2 Days in Colombia: Bogota Bike Tours

For exactly 52 hours in May 2011 I visited Bogota, Colombia. I'd never been to South America before, but when a friend who was working there for the month invited me, I quickly packed my bags! **Note: If you know anyone abroad-GO VISIT THEM-free room and board, duh!** I digress....On the morning of day one, with little time and patience, I hurriedly searched the internet for the best Bogota bike tour and came across a New York Times article review of Bogota Bike Tours. My six hours with Mike, former journalist from California, and five other tourists from all over the world, was filled with history, jokes, caution "No pictures as we ride through the Red Light District...", and good food and COFFEE! The cost was inexpensive and well worth it at just $15. I had so much fun that day that not only do I recommend it, but I would go again if I had the opportunity. **Only con: I wished we would have finished up earlier so I could have backtracked and visited some of the museums.
Exotic fruit whose name I cannot remember, if someone does please tell me!!
Somehow the peel got into my nose.....**only me**
Bullfighting Ring Entrance
Lunchtime is my favorite time!
Of course I had to get the frothy milkshake coffee drink WITH chocolate :)
Amazing graffiti
They also offer specialized graffiti tours
Cemetery...not my favorite stop, but interesting nonetheless

  1. I know the exotic fruit is called Passion Fruit!!!!!!!!! I love it!!!!!!!!! Chinola in Dominican Spanish! Maracuya, Parcha and Fruta de la Pasion in other countries!!!!!!!! Some people think it's too sour to eat alone and add sugar. I'm addicted to it. I love it!!!!!!!!
