Colombia Flashback (30 December 2017)

Yes, it’s yet another Travel Map Catch-Up Flashback post. Sure, we were only transferring to another flight at the El Dorado Airport in Bogotá, but it still bugged me that my travel map wasn’t showing that I’d been to Colombia. Due to the nature of our very brief sojourn in the airport, this post is mostly just photos of food, beer, and my view from my seat on the plane.

We had an excellent dinner at a Louisiana-style restaurant at the airport. It was called Orleans.

Our beers at Orleans, the American bistro. Mine is the Sweet Stout.

Here are a couple more photos of my stout, in case any beer nerds out there are interested. Here’s the label on the front of my stout:

And here’s the label on the back of my stout:

And I had my first ever po’ boy! I don’t remember what the filling was but I seem to remember that it was savoury and delicious.

After dinner, we got on our flight to Rio de Janeiro.

Here are a couple of photos of the display in front of my seat, just in case any aviation nerds out there care. First is the flight path from Bogotá to Rio de Janeiro:

This is how far it is from the airport in Bogotá to the one in Rio de Janeiro, in metric and Portuguese:

We didn’t get to see Colombia other than the airport in Bogotá this time (it was very shiny, by the way), but maybe in the future, we’ll get to see more of the city and maybe other parts of the country as well.
