Day 266am – Museums of Bogota

A graffiti photography tour of Bogota we had booked was cancelled at the last minute so we visit the long awaited Museo de Oro (Gold Museum) filled with relics dating from 200BC to the Inca period of the 1500’s. It is the largest in South America. After 9 months of learning and reading about the gold used in the pre-Hispanic period it was rewarding to find so many intricate pieces on exhibit. Afterwards we spend time at Fernando Botero’s museum a famous Colombian artist who portrays his subjects with exaggerated themes.
