Museo Nacional

Wandering Bogota's Flea Market

Bogota's Flea Market

SUNDAY, APRIL 15, 2007. EN ROUTE BOGOTA, COLOMBIA, TO QUITO, ECUADOR. Before heading to the airport for our late afternoon flight to Quito, Jeff and I visited the Museo Nacional (National Museum) in Bogota. Its holdings detail the history of Colombia through paintings, period furniture, and other displays. From the museum, we walked back on Carrera 7 to our hostel, stopping at a Sunday flea market. Carrera 7 is the main north-south artery in Bogota. On Sundays, this street is closed to vehicular traffic, enabling people to walk, bike, and rollarblade on the empty streets.
