Things from recent days

We have new friends - Ewmo, el osito, y la vaquita (who says "Rrrroww!"

This isn't every car in the house, but don't you like the "trancon?" - and in the front, note the favorite "buseta!"
And he has friends... lots of them.

And the last pic - well, I will just never get over how BIG Bogota is... and this is another perspective.

The Night it FELT like Christmas (yeah, this is a little outdated)

It was cold...And there were lights... But best of all was the little Christmas child. Doesn't he look like something straight off of a card?
We're not really sure what this is - part of the Bogota "summer" or "spring" theme. The city decorated 4 of the largest parks to correspond with the 4 seasons... but since they don't HAVE seasons here, we didn't fully understand the representation of the lights.
You can't really tell but this - lizard? is taller than a tall person (even than a tall American!) - sorry about the direction of the pic, I forgot to edit before uploading. 
The park didn't only have lights, but lots of free entertainment - would you like to hear a mariachi band, watch folks juggling fire, eat...?
All this adult conversation... maybe we'll find someone more interesting to talk to.

Home Sweet Home

It might be nice to own a car in Bogota... if you wanted to drive in this - or have 2 days every week where you aren't allowed to drive. Or there's the alternative - busses. This one, no matter what you may think, is NOT full.

Torre Fuerte... or Torre Loco (and the street across).
