Bogotá is clearly divided in four zones: the south, downtown, north, and what some people call 'the twilight zone'! I can suggest you to visit downtown: to have a walk with the daylight at Candelaria, visit the colonial museums, this zone has loads of restaurants, restaurants and discos since it's the place where most of the universities are located.. It's the place where some of the artist lives.. It's quite alive at night.. but you will have to be more than careful!! The north part of the city is where the nice houses and appartments are located, as well as some of the malls and shopping center. The first shopping center of the city was Unicentro: located at Calle 125 con Carrera 15, it is the best since it has been redecorated and it has new floor and well, it's nicer! Hacienda Santa Barbara is nice too: located at Carrera 7 con Calle 116, it is the place where and Hacienda and a modern building get together to make a lovely place to get lost, or Andino, near Zona Rosa, nice shops, including a TOWER Records, nice movie theaters, and pretty close to the discos and all that.
After the riding we were on our way to Bogota to a restaurant. But two of the guys (not them in the picture) decided to go to motel instead. In Colombia motel is the place where you stay away from home and family and have your romantic / personal time usually in the weekend.

Shopping in Bogota may be interesting if you merge in Chapinero, the middle-class barrio between Central Bogota and the Northern, richer barrios. A lot of confusion, but a nice first-hand experience of Latin America market.
"La T" is a "t"-crossed street where you will find a bunch of nightclubs, bars and restaurants. For the fans, that's also where the Hard Rock cafe is located!
La T is the place to be for a night of fun and great cocktails!

Adresses in Bogotá are rather easy to find.
The streets are all in quadratic order with 'Calles' (sometimes the calles are called avenidas) and 'Carreras'...just like streets and avenues in the USA. E.g. if you have the adresse 'Calle 77 #11-91' that means that you live in calle 77, 91 meters away from Carrera 11 in the direction of the next higher carrera (12 in this example). And though 91 is an odd number that means the house is on the left side. Even numbers indicate that the building is on the right side...if you're walking from carrera 11 to carrera 12...
The Abreviations are Cll. for Calle and Kra. or Cr. for Carrera.
Carrera might also be called "Transversal".
Calles might also be called "Diagonal".
