After landing at El Dorado International Airport I took a cab to the capital of Colombia. Bogotá, has a rich colonial tradition with a number of landmarks from that period preserved as historical landmarks. Most of these are in the La Candelaria, the oldest district in the city. The Capitol Municipal Palace was a very beautiful church and there several more churches that are worth a visit. Parque Arqueológico de San Agustín is a huge park in the Magdalena River gorge in southern Colombia where centuries ago, before the time of the Incas, people interred their dead in tombs guarded by fierce stone figures, some with animal features, some mythical, all intriguing to archaeologists and lots of tourists. When you first arrive at Parque Arqueológico de San Agustín it very much resembles the grand canyon. After 4 days I saw everything there was to see in Colombia, the only thing I didn't experience was a Colombian night club so on the fifth day i headed out to bogota bar and nightclub, and let me tell you i have never experienced anything like this the energy in that building was unreal and completely worth my time and money.
