fell in love with a boy, grew tired of it, fell in love with the world, yearned to fly from it
bogota was far from my favourite city in colombia, nor my favourite capital city in south america, but the view from cerro de monserrate was nothing short of spectacular. before i went to cuba i had already witnessed a similar view when i took a 'party bus' around the city on the way to some nightclubs. on that occasion i decided against taking my camera with me, a wise choice as i consumed so much rum i probably would have struggled with detaching the lens cap let alone taking any decent shots. upon my return to bogota i took the my camera, tripod and the cable car up to 3152m as the sun was on its way down. i couldn't have been greeted by a more majestic vista when i made it to the top. two hours and two podcasts later darkness fell and the lights of the city, stars, planets and moon created an equally stunning illumination.
