Andrew Evans provides us a glimpse of the street life in Bogotá’s city center.

I had great fun exploring the Colombian capital of Bogotá and was amazed what an artistic city it is. The wealth of art deco architecture, the splendid museums, talented street artists, and funky décor all around town surprised me. With so little time to enjoy such an under-appreciated city, I head straight down to La Plaza de Bolívar, where I happened upon the changing of the guard, the dismantling of the city’s gigantic artificial Christmas tree, a blind woman playing guitar and lots and lots of pigeons. Among the bird fanatics was young Nicolas who was feeding the pigeons handfuls of rice with his mother. Because I know absolutely nothing about making videos, he volunteered to help.

    Hi Andrew.
    As you said it is a shame you didn’t get to see the full Christmas spirit of Bogota. On the 8 of December the whole city lights up all the way till the beginning of January.
    After living in England for about ten years and traveling for two more I went back home determined to tell the world how beautiful my country is, so, I decided to start writing my very own blog, which I would love to share with you.
    That is why it makes me very happy finding posts like yours. Please give us hand and keep up the good work.
    Abrazos

    Nice video. I’m glad you visited and enjoyed Bogotá but you should have traveled and visited more Colombian cities! Medellin is such a great city! Cartagena so full of magic and beauty and those small little towns with a lot of historical beauty!
