Back in Transmilenio

I already said I'm taking French classes this year. Classes take place in downtown Bogotá where there's convenient transportation by the Transmilenio buses; the last 2 months the bus stop in front of the place I take classes was closed for repairs, which forced me to take buseta, a small bus which usually rides packed with passengers and wastes almost 1 hour to go downtown from home, while buses from the Transmilenio system take you there in 35 minutes, saving big in transportation time. Fortunately, the closed station finally reopened today so, bye bye buseta! (funny fact by the way: Buseta in brazilian portuguese does NOT mean small bus, I warn you!)

Feria de las Flores 2005

I really want to fly to Medellin to enjoy the Feria de las Flores (Flower's Festival) but all my friends work and don't have time to spare as I do right now. I still have a couple days to plan something.

To buy or not to buy?

For the last 3-4 months, I've been thinking about buying this motorcycle. I love it and I would certainly save a lot in gas, tolls and parking fees but, problem is, car drivers in Colombia don't like (hate!) to share the road with bikes. That scares me a bit and has held me up from going ahead and make the move...
