My last stop in Colombia was the capital city of Bogotá. It marked the end of 5,5 months of travelling in Latin America. I treated myself on a stay in a hotel instead of a hostel. The hotel was located near the historic center of La Candelaria. I took the opportunity of doing another South American graffiti tour and visited the Botero museum. From Cerro de Monserrate I had a view on the 1700-sq-km city, that still lies 2600m above sea level. In the evenings I preferred to have some last conversations in Spanish with Jesus, who worked the night-shifts in the hotel.
I had an amazing time in Central and South America where I got my passport stamped in eight different countries. I visited a lot of beautiful and spectacular places on the continent and I met many interesting backpackers from all around the world. I didn't get robbed or kidnapped but I was tired of being cautious all the time. I felt ready to go home and see my family and friends in the Netherlands.
I am grateful I was able to experience these months of backpacking and I will never forget them.
