Saturday February 10th

This was a rest day. Many of us went shopping to this brand’s weirdly located shop in a house which also included their garment maker and spent too much money.

Later went to Plaza Botero filled with a score or more somewhat odd and bulbous bronze statues of very well rounded figures many of them nudes.

We rested – that’s what it said in the trip notes. Serious police presence on many streets; our carefully selected vegetarian restaurant was closed (last night’s has ceased to be veggie, presumably due to lack of interest). Taxi rides are cheap as chips and quite interesting – many of the locals seems to use them and they are all over the city like a rash. At a stand a supervisor will sshow you the cab, count the occupants and take a note of the cab and destination. They drive like the whirling dervishes but get you there.
