I won’t lie to you, you first meal in Colombia was McDonalds. After arriving at midnight, we were starving and it was the only kitchen that was open.
I like to think I redeemed myself the next morning with breakfast a a restaurant called La Puerta Falsa. I had a melt in your mouth tamale accompanied with hot cocoa.
Finally we had dinner at a restaurant called San Alejo and had Sopa de Ajiaco. In a movie called Ratatouille, there is a scene towards the end where the grouchy food critic tastes a dish and he is sent back to his childhood. That is exactly what happened when I tasted this soup.
The smell transported me back to my grandmothers kitchen. The taste lifted my spirits and the warmth was exactly what I needed on a rainy day.
Bogota is a great city. There are great things to do, great food to eat and wonderful people. I was glad I was able to spend a day here while on my way to Ecuador.
