Once we were reunited and the rain stopped, our guide Juan gave us a quick walking tour of the area and left us at the Botero Museum. What a treat! Fernando Botero is considered one of Colombia's national treasures. His whimsical paintings can be funny and quite unusual. Not only does the museum house many of his most famous paintings, but we were also lucky enough to enjoy collections by other artists such as Picasso, Renoir, Dali, Matisse, Monet, Degas an Chagall! And did I mention admission is FREE? Seriously? We may just have to go back and do it all over again!
After the museum, we walked down the cobble stone street and ducked into a restaurant, we enjoyed a delicious dinner of typical Colombian food (the best meal we've had so far!)
All in all, a great day in Bogota!
P.S. Tuesday morning is our "Integración" meeting with ICBF.
