    Sorry but as Colombian. I think that the Guatavita lake is more than a lake, the town is also beautiful. All the tales around the lake are also amazing. Visiting a lake, at least for me, will be always a cool experience.

    For me, the Botanical Gardens is a treat – but no, not if I only had a couple of weeks here. But living here now, it’s a beautiful spot of nature within the concrete jungle. And Simon Bolivar – still in awe of the Colombian family picnics – as a phenomenon.

    […] The Colombian National Museum holds a decent collection of history, art and culture of the country, although I must say that for being the largest, I didn’t think there was much to see. Although limited, everything was nicely displayed and well-lit.   The coolest attraction of the Colombian National museum were the preserved Colombian mummies. For me, this was amazing because I had no idea Colombians mummified their dead, and not only did they mummify them, but they placed them in caves in the Andean mountains! Mummies+mountains=Awesome. You could also take a look at a mini replica of what the mummies looked like in their natural environment. I was totally blown away.   There were also Colombian artifacts showcasing the art and culture through time. And not to mention some unmistakable larger than life works of art from famous Fernando Botero. The Fernando Botero artwork was entertaining and colorful, though there mustn’t have been more than 10 paintings.   Overall, I say it was an hour and a half well spent. So if you haven’t gotten around to it and have the time and curiosity, go ahead and check it out, entrance is free. But if you only have 2-3 days and want to know what to do in Bogotá while you’re in town, I think you have better things to see. […]
