PRUDENCIA

 An eight hour lay over in Bogota, Colombia

 An eight hour lay over.  I find myself at Bogota airport waiting for the next plane to arrive. A wait that usually seems to last forever, instantly flew by like a blink of an eye. I called a local and within thirty minutes we arrived in the streets of Bogota. They’re rough around the edges, I like it.     ‘Those who are prudent are gentle rahter than loud. They move graciously through life, touching the lives of others in a positive way.’     I spend the first two hours dining at Prudencia, in the historical center of Bogota, ‘La Candelaria’. With a menu that varies daily and ingredients from all over the world, you are in for a culinary adventure.  This place proves that less is more and happiness is shared; a table for one is impossible! I picked a table which I shared with two strangers and I invited them along on my journey. We headed towards ‘Cerro de Monserrate’ where the sun was slowly setting and the city lights were flickering in the distance.  While I overlooked the largest city of Colombia, I came to realise that travelling has taught me to use time wisely and the best things are yet to come.
