For some reason, whenever we get directions people assume we wouldn't want to walk anywhere. We walk as much as we can, but everywhere we've gone, we are told that taxi is the best way to get around. But, it's not the only way.
Bogotá has this bus service called the Transmilenio and we decided to try it today. Despite warnings you'll get about hugging your things close to you and watching out for everyone not in your party, the Transmilenio is just like public transport in any major city. It has it's own lane in traffic (like the T in Boston) and is a pretty effective way to get around. Well, it probably works better if you know where you're headed. We didn't so we had to double back but we had a very pleasant ride and got to see a lot more of the city.

We missed lunch at Quinua y Amaranto- it's actually made fresh and once they run out of almuerzo, they've run out! Instead, I had a mushroom & avocado salad, fresh guava juice, and a vegetable empanada.

It's amazing how important good nutrition is.
