How to go to Colombia
How I did it: a friend at work invited me to go with her and her parents. her father is from neiva. we spent 10 days in neiva for the san pedro festival and 6 days in bogota, sightseeing.
Lessons & tips:
here are practical suggestions:colombia has amazing shopping. in bogota i bought a limited edition monogramouflage bag from louis vuitton (it's not available in the States, and the favorable exchange rate saved me $500) and a lot of spices and coffee from a gigantic carrefore supermarket- i had to buy another suitcase just to take all my groceries home.and make sure to buy many packets of roboprofin at a pharmacia- it's a great pill for headaches and cramps that's not available in the States.
