I had a couple of hours free earlier today, so I took the Transmilenio down Avenida Caracas to Avenida JimÃ©nez, where I walked up the hill to the wonderful Lerner bookstore. (They have so many publications about politics, security and power in Colombia, books that you simply can’t find anywhere in the United States.)
Avenida JimÃ©nez is a very busy place on a Saturday morning. It is a highly recommended walk – as long as you keep one hand on your bag at all times. I played the now-familiar role of “weird gringo with a camera.” Here are some more pictures.
