Bogota – Day 2 – Museo del Oro

Tuesday 11th August 2015

In the morning, Elcida offered me to try out drinking my chocolate with cheese stirred inside. It is a common practice here in Colombia, nothing more normal than that. But honestly, no, I just could not!!!

After brekky, I headed alone to the Transmilaneo and took the J23 towards the city. I met Flavius in front of the Museo del Oro at 10am and we spent the next 3h30 in there, it is so huge! Here are some of the pieces we saw.

This frog won the triple jump at the Olympic games, you can tell why when you look at her legs compared to the ones of the other frogs!

They may have known about Pinocchio too.

This teacher was captivating his kids. He had brought some music instrument to make them try and understand how some of the music instruments used at the time sounded and to tell some stories around that. Smart!

We took a break and had some of this coffee, apparently the best one of Colombia at the moment.

We asked for the fancy machine we had seen one someone`s table. It was funny to be served in this, with the scale under the bottle in which the coffee was filtering.

Then we realised it was 1.30pm and we had 30 minutes to grab some lunch to head to the Graffiti tour!
