THURSDAY, APRIL 12, 2007. BOGOTA, COLOMBIA. We ventured up to the top of a nearby mountain, Cerro de Monserrate, via cable car for a commanding view of the city of Bogota. After lunch at one of the mountain top's restaurants, Casa Santa Clara, we returned to the city center to visit Bogota's premiere attraction, the Museo del Oro (Museum of gold). It's the largest gold museum of its kind in the world, featuring gold pieces from throughout Colombian history. At the end of our tour of the museum, we ran into Rita (Vancouver BC, Canada) from our hostel and we all went for coffee at Juan Valdez, near Plaze de Boliviar, the heart of historic Bogota. In the evening, we dropped by Eva's house and went out to dinner. I had originally met Eva in December in Potosi, Bolivia. She is a Fulbright Scholar researching freedom of the press in Colombia.
