A trip to Bogotá
Bogotá D.C is Colombia's capital and largest city and it's definitely one of Latin America's major metropolitan hubs. With a population of over 8'000'000 people and a land mass over 600 sq. miles, it's pretty comparable to NYC when it comes to size and the number of habitants.
One of the most visited landmarks in Bogotá is Mount Monserrate that stands at over 10.000 above sea level and its history dates back to the 1600's as a place of pilgrimage until today. You can get to the top either by cable car, hiking your way through the pedestrian trail or hopping on the funicular that creeps up trough a very steep tunnel and it's the most fun experience in my opinion.
