Bogotá is a city that keeps growing and has a population (including the surroundings) of 8 million people coming from different places of Colombia and from all over the world. In the city you will find beautiful colonial and republican houses and also modern buildings. There are more than 50 museums like the gold museum, the National museum, the Botero museum, The Silva poetry house, the Quinta de Bolivar, Maloka, The Modern Art Museum, The Colon Theater and the Luis Angel Arango Library among others. It is a city loved by its inhabitants that are very friendly.
There are a lot of opportunities to practice sports, for example every Sunday the Ciclovia (kilometers of roads that are closed for cars across the city) is used by thousands of athletes and bicycle riders.
Bogotá as well as all Colombian and Latin-American cities, is a place where the social and economical differences are well defined and you should be prepared to see a lot of poor people. This will really make an impact on you and you will also be able to understand most of the problems that poor countries have to face. In Nueva Lengua we believe that all enterprises and individuals have a responsibility with the community and for that reason part of the utilities are dedicated to social work.
In the country side you will find the Guatavita lagoon, where history places the “El Dorado” legend (El Dorado is the name the Spaniards gave to the place where indigenous people used to store the gold), the salt cathedral of Zipaquirá, the Neusa Lake and thousands of country restaurants that are weekend gateways for Bogotá citizens.
