I've been to Montevideo as well. I happened to be there on Noche Buena (Christmas Eve)... it was CRAZY. People were all out into the streets, throwing alcohol all over one another. While it was interesting to witness, we were definitely trying NOT to get caught up in one of the groups. I would certainly go back.. But with that said, it would probably be with seeing maybe Colonia del Sacramento, or Punta del Este, too.

Bogota and the immediate footpath to the Andean forest, go straight from clubbing to hiking at 5am for dawn - 15 minutes walk from nightlife spot.

City on one side, lake on the other...

Whoa...

I need to get myself there. Like ASAP.

I know this sounds weird to say, but a number of pictures you share, kind of call to mind Iceland's landscapes (though more mountianous), to be honest. I don't think people would ever perceive that. I did an algorithm based on various distances to determine the "Mountain Capital of the World" among major cities because I'm a nerd and because of course I did. Bogota came out on top, and it's increasingly apparent that reality backs that up, too.

Not been to Iceland, it's on the bucket list but I do trek north Wales and Scotland whenever I can and I feel very much at home in Bogota in part because it reminds me a bit of these two naturally wonderful places in the UK.
