Bogota, Colombia

Colombia's capital and biggest city. We booked a hostel here but in stayed with locals in the end. Michal was here in 2011 and have to say that not much changed since then. Its still pretty exciting city. With all the advantages and disadvantages of south american metropolis.

Title of this piece of art is "The Hell"  Botero gallery...

Guatape, Colombia

This was nice surprise. Small town on the bank of huge lake. Close from here Pablo Escobar had his fancy fortress villa. The villa is a ruin now and the town became the favorite vacation destination for both tourists and locals.
Fountain. The old man from the fountain is alive. You can see him behind the fountain

Medellin, Colombia

There were 6349 murders in Medellin just in one year (1991). Mainly thanks to Pablo Escobars drug cartel. Once the most dangerous city in world changed to good place to live. It has perfect position in a valley where the weather is springlike all year round. There is plenty on culture, museums, and universities. And they kill just few hundred people yearly here now so its pretty good for Latin American city.
