Our place in Bogota

We arrived in Bogota last July 2011. We were first put in a temporary apartment on Calle 85 near Andino mall, it's a nice area the only cons is the apartment is right at the corner of 85 and Carrera 10, a busy intersection not to mention motorists in Colombia love to honk! Two months later we moved into our assigned apartment, it has 3 bedrooms & 3.5 bathrooms. The apartment takes the whole 3rd floor, and the elevator open straight to our apartment so it's really nice plus it’s in a nice part of town called Chico. We’re still on the corner of an intersection, Carrera 9 & Calle 94, but it’s not too noisy. We have the Parque Chico and Parque 93 close to us, both in easy walking distance. In a city of 8M+ people, it’s nice to look out your windows and see the trees and green spaces of the parks. So we can walk to the parks and to restaurants easily, plus we have a small grocery nearby that we can walk to. On Sundays and local holidays, we can easily get to Carrera 7 (Septima) or Carrera 11 to take part in ‘ciclovia’, when certain streets are closed to cars and open to walkers, joggers, cyclists, rollerbladers…you name it, very cool.
