Christmas Lights in Bogotá

Some people I have talked to in the United States have asked me what Christmas is like in Bogotá. They have asked me if they have Christmas lights. The answer is an overwhelming yes. In fact, judging by the lights and decorations, if you didn’t know you were in South America you might think it was the holiday season in America. While Rolos have just as many lights as New Yorkers, they decorate their commercial centers, or malls, more than the U.S. It is a child’s fantasy: fake snow flying from the balcony railings, fake snowballs to throw at your siblings, the North Pole, Santa’s lap, and much more. I didn’t take any photos inside the various commercial centers because I rarely shop and didn’t have the motivation. However, last night I walked around my neighborhood, Chapinero, as well as Puente Aranda, snapping the shots you see below.

In 2005 I had the fortune to travel to Colombia. Bogota is a really nice place to live in. While I was there I thought I was in some part of Europe, everything is really nice and colombians are very sophisticated and they DO know how to enjoy life. Hope you're having fun down there. I really can't wait to go back! (Visiting Cartagena is a must!)
