Our last night in town, we decided to take the advice of the New York Time’s 36 hours in Bogota article and check out local artisanal leather workshop, Giraldo Taller Manual del Cuero so Pat could look for a murse (man-purse).
We weren’t disappointed, the leatherwork was beautiful and Pat found a satchel for a reasonable price.
After our shopping, we took a taxi to the Zona Rosa, the modern shopping district, for dinner at the famous Andre Carne de Res.
Everyone we have met, raved about the “dining experience,” including the New York Times. It includes live entertainment, professional dancers and tons of red meat. Call me jaded, but I didn’t think it lived up to its reputation. It felt very contrived and fake, and our dinner cost just about as much as a steak dinner in the US. We also checked out Bogota Beer Company for a local brew. All-in-all was a nice way to spend the last night with our new Australian friends, Cheryl, Josh, Charlotte, and Habesh.
