I've always enjoyed getting lost in a new town, just walking the streets without any particular plan. You can learn a lot about a new place through architecture and observing life of the local people. Zipaquirá was very nice for such exploring.

The town has recently transformed streets in the centre to pedestrian walkways with the intention to preserve the area of beautiful old Spanish colonial style buildings with typical balconies, and also to make it friendlier to tourists.

On the way I stopped in one of Zipaquirá's great bakeries and had a delicious snack break with tinto (black coffee), pan de yuca (yucca bread) and almojabana (corn bread with cheese). I was ready for the journey back to Bogotá.
