The guide of the 7 Summits Club Svetlana Kotlyar reports from Colombia:

Hola amigos! Hello everyone from sunny Bogota! Today our group gathered in full 16 people in the capital of Colombia!

In the morning we walked around the historical center of Bogota. We walked around the central square of the city — Plaza de Bolivar, built in the early 19th century. Life is in full swing here at any time of the day: street performers, numerous fruit stalls, ice cream shops, souvenir shops, coffee shops with delicious coffee, vendors of handicrafts from banknotes and sellers of fried ants — a local delicacy.

After lunch we visited one of the best places in Bogota — Mount Montserrat. Here, at an altitude of 3100, there is an observation deck with a view of the whole city. We visited the temple dedicated to the Black Madonna of Montserrat, watched hummingbirds, and then tasted coca leaf tea in one of the cafes. They say that it helps the body to adapt better to altitude. Well, we'll check it out in a couple of days!

In the evening, we celebrated the arrival of all the team members for a festive dinner, and at the same time congratulated our guide — Boris Egorov on his birthday!

Tomorrow we change the location, leave the already beloved Bogota and fly to Salento for an excursion to one of the coffee farms. And from there the mountain part of our program will begin.

The guides of the 7 Summits Club were with you: Alex Abramov, Boris Egorov and Svetlana Kotlyar.
