Be who you are and say what you feel because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind. – Dr. Seuss
My last day in Colombia I decide to wake up early at 7am and venture around Bogota, where I began with a trip up the funicular to Monserrate for only $15,400 pesos roundtrip ($8.16). This church was built in the 17th Century and is a shrine, devoted to "El Señor Caído" (Our Fallen Lord). Walking through the hordes of crowds I take in the views of the city and pause to reflect on the elaborate statues portraying the timeline of the Passion Week, I can’t help but appreciate all the beauty in the world. After the crowds begin to be too much and the raindrops begin to fall I began the slow journey down the mountain and back to the city. Avoiding the oncoming rain I decide to duck in to the Gold Museum since the cost is only $3,000 pesos ($1.58). Wandering through each of the floors it is interesting to see the intricate detail and artisanship of the various pieces. After leaving and just walking around in the afternoon I run in to Josh, Iefke, and Leigh who I originally met when they stayed at our hostel in Nicaragua and then bumped in to them again in Salento, Colombia. This is a common occurrence when backpacking and is always a welcomed surprise. Since this is my last night we all decide to enjoy a nice dinner at, of all places, a French restaurant because we are in the mood for steaks. Café Rosario’s is a narrow building with candlelight to set the mood for the three of us guys and Josh’s girlfriend. It was a great last night in Colombia before heading back to Central America and I couldn’t help but debate taking up offers to spend the Summer months either in Europe or Australia. Oh first world problems.
