Saturday Night Fever In Bogota

SATURDAY, APRIL 14, 2007. CHIA, OUTSIDE BOGOTA, COLOMBIA. This afternoon, Macala, another friend of a friend of Jeff's, took Jeff, Ian, and me for a late lunch/early dinner at Andres Carne de Res located just outside Bogota. Macala is a fashion editor for a Bogota magazine; Ian is a fellow traveller from Melbourne, Australia. Andres Carne de Res is a Bogota institution, at least for well-heeled Colombians. Open Fridays, weekends, and holidays, it's a vast, cavernous restaurant decorated throughout with Colombian ornaments, handicrafts, photos, knick knacks, and lots of other stuff. I've never been in a restaurant quite like it. Most of the wait staff are young, student types. The restaurant specializes in grilled meats. We started with huge Mojitos (equal to about three or four regular Mojitos) served in a large bowl, followed by assorted Colombian appetizers, and a couple of nice cuts of grilled beef. We finished an early evening with each of the guys taking turns dancing with Macala, our beautiful and wonderful Bogota host.
