Short Walks from BogotáSaturday, 6 April 2013
It’s not a walking guide, but if you want to have some of the complete confusion of Colombian events laid out then Tom Feiling’s Short Walks from Bogotá is a great introduction. Of course you’re going to come away with the realisation that it’s whole lot more complicated than you realised. Colombia is enjoying a bit of a tourist boom at the moment, the guerrilla and paramilitary struggle may not have disappeared, but it’s much less of a problem than it was a few years ago. I’ve just got back, see the post on my Ciudad Perdida (‘Lost City’) walk and a little excursion to the Guajira Peninsula. It will all show up in my new book Dark Lands in August.
