I arrived three hours early and went through six different and thorough searches at the airport; I do look like a drug dealer. By my fourth day it had become clear how many wealthy Colombianas have had plastic sugery, of the disproportionate kind if you get my drift. Colombia now has more people than Spain. The American government freezes the funds of the families of Americans who have been kidnapped. I found Bogotá safer than Madrid.
The Italian edition of Vanity Fair just listed Bogotá as one of the six up-and-coming tourist hotspots; Sibiu, Romania and the Kurile Islands (Russia) also made the list, enjoy.
