Friday Flashback: Coffee and Couchsurfing in Bogota

Plaza Bolivar - Bogota, Colombia

Plaza Bolivar - Bogota, Colombia

Before leaving Spain, I'd already had my wallet stolen by a pickpocket.  Was traveling to Colombia going to be that much more of a risk than getting on a crowded metro after an FC Barcelona match?

Due to a Couchsurfing stay in Bogota, I quickly began to feel at ease in a country with a violent past, and a troubled present (America's ongoing demand for cocaine doesn't help).
