Bogata Columbia - November 1988
Last week I posted Cartagena Columbia, while on that trip we took an overnight tour to Bogata.
We were told this was the black market for currency exchange.
The Bolivar Square (Plaza de Bolivar) was named after Simon Bolivar who was one of South America’s greatest generals. His victories over the Spaniards won independence for Bolivia, Panama, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, and Venezuela. He is called El Liberator (The Liberator) and the “George Washington of South America.”
To the East side of the square, you will find the Primary Cathedral of Bogotá, the seat of the Archbishop of Bogotá.
Lunch - serving typical Colombian food and it is still around today.
