Tonight we are taking a nightbus to Medellin, where we will probably stay about a week before we leave to Santa Marta! Some pictures (from Bogota) will follow soon…

Paddy´s Day

It´s St. Patrick´s Day today so we are going to find a pub with lots of Aquila (Colombia´s Heineken but much better tasting), maybe together with our Irish friends from the hostel which we met during a beer tasting session in a Colombian Brewery last night. The beer was surprisingly good! A picture:


Today we decided to hike up on of the mountains around the city. Bogota is at around 2600m, and we climbed up to 3000+. Unfortunately not at the top, since there wasn´t really a path at all. The hike included some spectacular views, some dangerous climbs on slippery rock-walls and a lot of tries, plants in bushes we had to get through. Some pictures to show it:

Arrived in Bogotá

A little after 5PM local we arrived in the smog-filled capital of Colombia. Here is a picture of the street our hostel is in from this morning:

Street the hostel is in.

Tom will be finishing his thesis today while Peter and I will go chilling. Well, and plan our trip, somewhat.

Almost leaving…

While Tom is already in Düsseldorf, Anne made this website on the final evening in Holland and left me with the task of setting it up a bit since he hadn’t packed his backpack yet. Tomorrow at 07:50 (GMT +1) we are flying to Madrid and then to Bogota where we arrive at 16:40 (GMT -5). I hope the next posts will be more interesting…
