Bogota, Colombia... Buscando Shakira
Yesterday, I spent some time with my new friends Silvana and Julio. I toured the old part of the city where all of the government buildings are. I saw an unexpectedly great collection of art, including works from Cesanne, Monet, Picasso, and a local favorite Botero! Botero is from Medallin and paints and sculpts all fat things. There is even a fat version of Mona Lisa and Adam & Eve... pretty interesante! Nearby, there was a restaurant that advertises "el mejor ajiaco en todo el mundo", so we had to try it. It was a chicken stew. I might try to make it. Later, we all met up for what was ostensibly "coffee", but was decidedly more aptly described as Aguila cerveza; hey, I´m just a guest here, so who am I to complain?
