The City lights of Bogota, Colombia

One of the best viewpoints over the city of Bogota is from the 48th floor of the Colpatria tower on the intersection of Calle 26 and Carrera 7. It’s walking distance from the apartment where we are staying, so on Friday night we went to the tower to enjoy the view of the city’s lights. It is usually raining or cloudy in Bogota, so we were happy to have a clear view over the city.DSC_8603 DSC_8606 DSC_8608 Dirk took most of these pictures. We had to wait in a line to enter the building. Once at the top there were many people who looked like art students who sat around with their tripods and cameras experimenting with night time pictures.DSC_8609 For more views of the city, tourists can go up to Cerro Monteserrate to look down on the city from an even higher point of view. DSC_8613 The Colpatria building is open on Friday nights and Saturdays and Sundays during the daytime for visitors to access the viewpoint for 4,500COP. DSC_8645The theme for this week’s weekly photo challenge is Nighttime.

    • I’ve not been to Sao Paulo yet. 7 million people live in Bogota and the city is pretty spread out with surprisingly few high rise buildings.
