Bogotá is an imperious urban sprawl, and although it is lacking the bursts of colour that flow through the rest of the country, it pulls you in nevertheless and wills you to be impressed. A feverish energy can be identified as you negotiate the oft-chaotic streets, and a notable lull can be found as you turn the corner, showing that this city is a city of contrasts in a country that adheres to the same principle. Situated within a valley and overlooked like a sentinel by the magnificent Montserrate, the vast metropolitan expanse can appear overwhelming at first, but as you become familiar with the order through chaos and appreciate Bogotá’s different pockets of varied culture, architecture, and demography, you understand why despite its muted climate so many Colombians flock here.
