I had one day to myself in Bogotá, Colombia and followed a friend’s tip to visit the the flee market (Mercado de Pulgas) in the quaint neighborhood of Usaquen.
After a few hours of roaming around cute streets and the artsy local stalls it was time to go back to the hotel.
I couldn’t find a taxi and a very sweet man at a nail salon offered to call one for me on his mobile app. “Have you visited the Mercado de Pulgas?”he asked, pointing to the right in the opposite direction from where I spent the day. Oops…
This was not the first time I got lost and discovered something great. If you want to know more, you can read about a similar experience that happened a month later in Chile.
