Favorite thing: The best part of visiting Bogota was definitely getting to see some friends, both old and new. One of my friends in Philadelphia, Mauricio, is a doctor originally from Bogota who was living there when I visited for a year to do some training. I was able to spend an evening with him and his girlfriend and they were even kind enough to take me on a nighttime driving tour of La Candelaria.

I also was able to spend some time with Amy (pictured) who works for Children's Vision, a non-profit school/orphanage in South Bogota. She's been in Bogota for 6 1/2 years and is doing truly remarkable work with kids who were abandoned and unloved and who have now found a home at Children's Vision. Being able to spend some time with Amy and visiting the kids was truly rewarding.
