A fast glance at Bogota

Posted by Javier on 2 August 2009

We had only one afternoon to enjoy Bogota, since on Saturday 25th we had to start pedalling to meet the deepeei crew on route, so they would film us from a van. Having only about 3-4 hours of light to visit the city we decided to go to the hill and santuary of Montserrate, which can be accessed by cable car. We expected to have a nice view of the metropolis, but we did not count with the beautiful light that we enjoyed that day.

Preparations and arrival in Bogota

Posted by Javier on 2 August 2009

We were selected for Going South in December 2008, but in that moment we were not sure when we could start the trip. The people of deepeei understood that we could not start until late summer, probably September.  Asa worked as a veterinary surgeon for the Swedish State, and I was also in Sweden trying to finish a PhD thesis that I started back in 2005.
