Alright, let’s see if I can keep a decent diary on this trip. Arrived to Bogota fine, underfunded of course, but everything else is okay. Checked into the hostel, the first one is 14 days. It’s cheap, in a safe upscale but not-fun neighborhood. I want to be in Candelaria, and I’m in Chapinero. But that’s fine. They have a desk here so maybe I’ll do the work and study before relocating to the next destination.
As soon as I checked in I called my credit cards to make sure I am well-funded. Turns out I will lose at least 3-4% of my value here with just international bank charges. Then I went to get some cash (hostel is cash-only), and ate. Took a shower, and now I’m in operation.
Airport food was quite bad, and I can already feel myself losing shape. I have a belly. I will need to control quite precisely what I eat. Maybe a daily run would be a blessing.
As a reminder, this really belongs to travel-guide.mobi, but since that infrastructure isn’t setup yet, I’ll just post it here.
