Hola desde Bogotá
Arriving in Bogotá on Sunday morning I descended into a cool rush of bracing Andean air and the nerve centre, politically and otherwise, of this country that I have so long wanted to visit. I will be here for two weeks to work on some stories in the capital and throughout Antioquia Department and, not coincidentally, to witness the country's first presidential election that will mark that end of the rule of President Álvaro Uribe in office since 2020. Thus far a very intriguing place in many regards.
