But the poetry of Bogota is not alone, you will see it in nature, it is in the customs and in a thousand details that will please you

Bogotá Travel is Poetry, What makes up this poetry? It is found in the customs and in the thousand details that will please you. Before anything else, the place is admirable. The high summits, sometimes cloudless, other times covered with violet clouds, place a vast margin around this urban landscape whose colors change during the day. This Skies and above all, the sunsets, are among the most beautiful in the world. Strips resplendent white surround the long clouds and blacks, red trickles, orange and purple, frame an enormous sun.

Go out of Bogota and stroll around the savannah, here you find other elements of the poetry of this city. Due to certain details, these huge flat plains will remind you of French landscapes. The pale green of the eucalyptus heightens the tender green of the willows. On stormy days, a Walhalla of blackish grey colored clouds contrast with the smoky grey of the mountains; once in a while, a gap of an ultramarine blue and a gap of a vivid white, pierce the large black storm cloud. An engraver of genius, such as Gustavo Dore, would find admirable motifs in this.
