I always thought people in the states were bad at driving.. Every time I get into a cab here I feel like I'm going to die. The cars don't yield to pedestrians whatsoever.. The lines in road mean nothing... Every car is maybe 2 feet apart at the max while driving 60mph in busy traffic.. And the police don't care and are just as bad. I guess it's the norm and I shouldn't worry.
Anyways.. Anyone ever been to the region? I'm here for 3 months. Only been here since last friday and so far have been to the malls and restaurants.. But haven't ventured to far away because its dangerous.. The culture is very different and I find it fascinating. The food here is amazing.. Also trying to keep my mind occupied because there isn't much I can do in the city without a guide for fear of mugging.
Just would like to hear anyone else's experiences in South America... or here in Bogota, Colombia. Kinda bored...

You should most definitely score some blow while you're there. It's like nothing you've ever experienced here in the states. I'm generally not a stim fan at all what so ever, but pure coke is one of the best drugs I've ever had.
Go to the beaches and learn to kiteboard. Trek to the lost city. Check out the san augustan archaeological park. See if you can take a cooking class so you can impress the ladies when you get home. Cocaine.

I used to live in Chile, and the driving there was pretty similar. While there, I made good friends with a Colombian from Bogota, and he made me some pretty dope food. As for things to do, not sure how to help you there. I always heard that outside of Bogota it was pretty dangerous, especially if you're American. I always heard really good things about Cali. Especially about the women there. So if you can, I would try to make it out there.
