At one time Bogota was one of the most dangerous places in the world. Fortunately things change, such as that haircut you were sporting way back when. Just like your haircut, Bogota has changed too.
There are really only two real dangers in Bogota now. The first is that you may not be able to decide how many emeralds you want to bring home. (HINT: All of them) Colombia is the largest producer of high quality emeralds and you'll find all kinds of preset options but since you'll have a few days you can go ahead and pick out the perfect stone and have something custom made. Or just wait and have your jeweler do something for you back home. For those of you who aren't really into emeralds, take caution -- you might be by the time you leave. The other real danger is that you will get stuck in traffic. There is no denying that traffic is a problem for Bogota. Fortunately, the city is working on improving the roads but more importantly your driver will have a "Plan B" and will do so in a comfortable car. This will simply give you more time to obsess on those emeralds. Don't worry, there are plenty of non-emerald things worth exploring in Bogota. From great traditional and contemporary art to an explosive dining scene -- there is plenty to keep you entertained in this city. No matter what, you'll walk away with new friends as the people are fantastic. Perhaps those dangerous times have made the people here so warm and welcoming. After all, you are significantly happier with your current look which makes you a lot more fun to be around. What? You haven't changed your look? Don't worry - nobody will be looking at your hair with all your new emeralds. Bogota is now only dangerously chic. See for yourself in the below...
