Our day will start in the bohemian La Macarena neighborhood where we will sample authentic Colombian Ajiaco soup, shop for exotic fruit at the market, take polaroid photos in front of street art for you to take home, and visit our favorite bakery for dessert. From here we will take the bus to Chapinero, known as the hipster area of Bogotá. In this neighborhood, you’ll find Bogotá’s under 30 creatives, the LGBT community, young professionals, and students. It's also the neighborhood that we live in! While in Chapinero you'll visit a beautiful spot to try Colombian coffee, visit a local "fruit boutique" to sample Colombian fruit, and do a mojito making workshop at our apartment terrace to end the tour. You'll also get to visit Giovanni's workshop where he designs and makes clothing.
