Who is "you"? If you are referring to something someone said on their travel page, or in response to a previous question, you can use VT-mail to contact the person directly. In fact your post isn't really a question but a tip, which you might want to include in your own travel page.

Maybe it is my tip you have read. I visited the Salt Cathedral in August 2007 and joined a tour in Spanish. When we were down in the cathedral the guide asked me if I wanted to change to another group which was down there as they had a tour in English. So I got the last part of my tour in the Cathedral in English.

Travel Tips for Bogotá

Altitude Sickness

by IrishFem

Bogota is 3000m above sea level. I found myself having dizzy spells and headaches and nausea for the first month l was there. If your climbing make sure you have plenty of bottled water and eat enery rich carbohydrates.

Packing List

by idrincon

Nothing special. Just be sure to pack at least one heavy jacket. Nights in Bogota tend to be very cold (under 10° C).
If you come in a business travel you should pack your three-piece suite, white shirt and tie. Business dress is very formal.

The Place for Postcards!

by Ames24 about not sure

This place has about 400 postcards of Colombia. They surround the entrance of the shop. You walk in and feel overwhelmed, and so have to strategize what places you want postcards for first. Ie. look through all the postcards of Bogotá first and choose the ones you want, then the ones of other Colombian cities/places, and then the more general "Colombia" ones.

They have all the postcards numbered, and give you a pencil and paper to write down the numbers of the ones you want. Then they pull them and you pay. An amazing selection and they're quite organized as you can imagine!

The shop does also sell other things Colombian that could do well for gifts/souvenirs. Many postcards :) They were about 900 pesos a piece.

From Bogotá to Villa de Leyva

by mircaskirca

There are only two direct buses daily from Bogotá to Villa de Leyva. Alternativelly you can take a bus to Tunja (3,5 hours) which are very frequent. From Tunja minibuses run regularly and it takes about an hour.

I woke up very early that morning. Some people returned to Platypus and were quite loud. So I thought I better get up and go to the terminal as early as possible. I ask the guy at the reception to call a taxi for me. It took about 25 minutes to get to the terminal and I payed 9.000 COP. I took the early morning direct bus at 05:30am (which left at 06.00am) and costed 18.000 COP (January 2009). The bus was quite small but comfortable.

In about 4,5 hours we arrived in Villa de Leyva. The terminal is three blocks from Plaza Mayor and Casa Puente del Arco just two block further on, so I decided to take a short walk.

by Ossi.P

Visit 'Palos de Moguer (Casa Cervecera)' and have a beer.
It is a micro-brewery and the only place to buy and drink their beer (exept their branches in Cali and Cartagena) named 'Colon'. They have 5 different types of self-made beer.
