Bogota is the coolest city I have seen so far! Contrary to popular belief, it is beautifully clean and safe, and it is full of young people. It is miracurously easy to get around on the 6 year old subway system. There are tons of museums and art shows, flea markets, and cute trendy cafes are found on every corner. At night the streets are well lit, and there are local bars playing a range of music to suit every taste. The highlight of my time in Bogota was attending a soccer game. Santa Fe, the team representing Bogota, was well supported; its fans were singing songs and cheering the entire 90 minutes of the game, and continued well after it was over. Everyone was outfitted in red and yellow; it would have made fantastic pictures, but the security guards confiscated my camera batteries on the way in.
