Through the streets of Bogota

11 Mar

Our first stop back to South America was in Bogota, and our first tour was the Cerro de Monserrate, where it was built a monastery and today is an attraction to religious, curious and tourists who want to admire Bogotá from above.

We were also lucky to arrive during FILBo (Bogota International Book Fair), and Brazil was the guest of honor. It had exhibitions of Brazilian illustrators, roundtables with Brazilian writers and two Brazilian travelers so happy for feeling welcomed and closer to home.

The city is full of great museums, beautiful parks, great cafes, bookstores, street fairs and it’s so easy to get to all these places.

Bogota has a wonderful view from up its 2,600 meters of altitude, all surrounded by buildings with exposed bricks that make the city even more charming. It’s where we made dear friends and I was happy to celebrate my 28 th birthday.

Video: See you, Central America!

6 Mar

Maybe, before the project, we wouldn’t know to point where Nicaragua is on the map. But today we are proud to know a little more of it, Guatemala, El Salvador, Costa Rica and Panama. Here’s some of what we saw in Central America, along with the certain of how it enriches our Latin America.

To everything that is part of ourselves there is no “goodbye”. At most a “see you”.
